Music and Lecture
Michel van der Aa is a major force in the European contemporary music scene. In 2013 he won the Grawemeyer Award, previously won by composers such as Boulez, Lutoslawski, Ligeti and Takemitsu. A filmmaker as well as a composer, van der Aa has been combining these two media plus stage action in absolutely unique ways, creating masterpieces of new expressivity along the way. He will be in the U.S. to stage direct the American premiere of his fourth opera, Sunken Garden, in Dallas. Wake Forest University is the only school he will visit. Louis Goldstein will perform “Transit” for piano and video, and Mr. van der Aa will speak about his music.
