The final performance of Da Camera’s 2013-14 season, titled “Late Style and Young Trailblazers,” features the famed International Contemporary Ensemble (ICE) and conductor Karina Cannellakis in a program called “Late Style NOW” that includes works by John Adams, Steve Reich and Louis Andriessen.

As Da Camera says,

The trailblazing renegades John Adams, Louis Andriessen and Steve Reich changed the course of late 20th-century music — each in their own way allowing the pop world to enter the concert hall – and are now creating the works that define their late styles.

Friday evening’s concert in the Wortham Center’s Cullen Theater includes the Houston premieres of works by three giants of contemporary music: Steve Reich’s Radio Rewrite, inspired by Radiohead’s songs Everything in it Right Place and Jigsaw Falling into Place; Grawemeyer Award-winning Dutch composer Louis Andriessen, one of the most acclaimed, influential composers of his generation, combines video and music in Life; and John Adams’ 2007 work Son of Chamber Symphony.

Da Camera artistic & general director Sarah Rothenberg talks with Houston Public Media’s St.John Flynn about the performance.

Da Camera presents “Late Style NOW: Adams, Andriessen, Reich,” Friday, May 2, 2014, 8:00 PM, Cullen Theater of the Wortham Center downtown.
