16-6-2017 Sónar Barcelona

As part of the collaboration between Barcelona’s Auditori and Sónar Festival, stargaze performed the Spanish premiere of Death Speaks by David Lang and were joined by Nico Muhly on the piano, part of the original line-up (next to Bryce Dessner, Owen Pallett and Shara Worden). Death Speaks revolves around and lends a voice to death in five long compositions that dilute the boundary between pop and contemporary music and is based on Lieder by Franz Schubert. Lang’s work does not escape the darkness of death, yet somehow manages to endow it with a strange intimacy and extraordinary beauty.
