Steve Hackman’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stravinsky

June 16, 2019
Benaroya Hall

Tom Russo

Wagner meets Adele. Beethoven meets Beyoncé. Stravinsky meets Kanye and Daft Punk. Get ready for the most ambitious pop-classical concert mashup yet from composer/producer Steve Hackman. Harder, Better, Faster, Stravinsky weaves together pop-classical matches like Brahms’ Academic Festival Overture with Lady Gaga’s “Born this Way,” and Shostakovich’s Fifth Symphony with Muse’s “Uprising” and Chance the Rapper’s “Paranoia,” creating a compelling musical landscape that is both strikingly modern and enchantingly classical. Three vocalists join the full orchestra for this special presentation.
