With a diverse repertoire ranging from Gluck to Kaija Saariaho, soprano Dawn Upshaw has an unwavering commitment to expanding the boundaries of vocal recitals. For her BAM recital debut, she performs music by iconoclastic American composers—George Crumb and Charles Ives—with Gilbert Kalish on the piano. The evening’s program features Crumb’s Ancient Voices of Children, a cycle of songs on texts by García Lorca, composed for soprano, boy soprano, oboe, mandolin, harp, amplified piano, and percussion, which Upshaw first performed in a 1997 staging by Bill T. Jones that was praised as “riveting” and “gripping” by The New York Times. The program, which also features songs by Charles Ives and opens with Elliott Carter’s Sonata for Flute, Oboe, Cello and Harpsichord (performed by Tara Helen O’Connor, Stephen Taylor, Jeffrey Grossman, and longtime Nonesuch artist Fred Sherry), reaffirms her unwavering commitment to expanding the boundaries of vocal recitals.

Venue Description: A multi-arts center located in Brooklyn, offering theater, dance, music, opera, film, and more from emerging artists and innovative modern masters.
