Steve Hackman’s Harder, Better, Faster, Stravinsky
June 16, 2019
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.
