An all-star lineup -- including David Byrne, Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip), Pat Mahoney (LCD Soundsystem), Kele Okereke (Bloc Party), Money Mark, Joshua Redman, Sinkane and the legendary Lijadu Sisters of Nigeria in their first live performance in 30 years -- takes the stage at the Greek to perform the futuristic, synth-heavy electronic music of elusive Nigerian artist William Onyeabor. The evening begins with a DJ set by special guest Wooden Wisdom (Elijah Wood & Zach Cowie). Onyeabor self-released eight nearly impossible-to-find albums between 1978 and 1985 in Nigeria, but after becoming a born-again Christian turned his back on his work and refused to speak about it for nearly three decades. Last year, after a five-year odyssey to track down Onyeabor and secure his permission to release his music, the Luaka Bop label issued World Psychedelic Classics 5: Who Is William Onyeabor? The album was named one of Time magazine's top ten albums of the year and Pitchfork's Best Reissue of the Year 2013. Even now, after the album's enormous success, the artist's life story remains a mystery -- and he seems content to keep it that way. Learn More
Quotes & Highlights
“The future of great violin playing is safe and very bright in Augustin Hadelich’s hands”—American Record Guide
Under the shimmering drama of the Pompeian Room’s gold Tiffany dome, “a young artist with no evident limitations” (The New Yorker_) returns to the series in a dynamic program of music by Schumann (Sonata in a, Op. 105), Takemitsu (_From Far Beyond Chrysanthemums and November Fog), Ravel (Tzigane), and Beethoven’s mighty Kreutzer Sonata (Op. 47 in A). Hadelich is joined by pianist Joyce Yang, “a wonderful player with the accuracy of a surgeon and the heart of an artist” (Naples News).
There will be a pre-concert talk at 7:40pm.
Following the concert, enjoy a champagne and dessert reception, and the opportunity to meet the artists.
