Decoda at Carnegie Hall "Punk, Funk and Circumstance"

  • Weill Recital Hall at Carnegie Hall (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Decoda invites you to explore the alternative world of classical music off the beaten path! From the dark trapeze world of Prokofiev’s Quintet to Marsalis’ A Fiddler’s Tale, which reimagines Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale for the modern age - infused with jazzy and funky elements. Then a quick dip into the pomp and circumstance of Britten’s Oboe Quartet, before arriving at the final stop in the world of Victorian England, with David Bruce’s Steampunk.
