Strange Sounds from the Bookshelf

This concert, inspired by the rules and idiosyncrasies of the English language, features Nico Muhly’s ‘The Elements of Style’ based on the eponymous guidebook by Strunk & White, and special Oxford English Dictionary-inspired commissions from Los Angeles composers Anne LeBaron and Scott Worthington. Performed by the new music collective wasteLAnd and featuring egg beaters, typewriters, clattering teacups and other unexpected guests.
