Introduction/abstract

Thomas Hampson · Martin Grubinger · The Percussive Planet Ensemble

Music by George Crumb, John Corigliano and Sting

The high culture of Frank Sinatra! Percussionist Martin Grubinger, baritone Thomas Hampson and the Percussive Planet Ensemble have put together an inspired programme of classic US songs: original arrangements of Sinatra hits like «Come Fly With Me» and Sting perennials like «Seven Days» meet John Corigliano’s songs about the destruction of the World Trade Centre and the spherical soundscapes of George Crumb. The Prelude with Georg Breinschmid’s «Flying Schnörtzenbrekkers» also promises the unusual and the spectacular.
