Singer and guitarist Shara Worden is the protean powerhouse behind My Brightest Diamond. For this performance, she joins the innovative quartet Sō Percussion, who play with “an exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy, rigor and bedlam” (The New Yorker). Sō Percussion began by performing modern percussion classics by John Cage and Steve Reich, but have since expanded their mission to commission new works from some of the best composers writing today. Sō play one of their signature works, Reich’s Music For Pieces of Wood, their performance of which The New York Times declared “was like watching whirling dervishes enter an intensely focused, disciplined trance.” They also play Music For Wood and Strings, by The National guitarist Bryce Dessner, a work written especially for Sō. The concert culminates in Timeline, a vibrant forty-five-minute song cycle recently commissioned from Shara Worden and Sō Percussion by Carnegie Hall.
