The Contemporary Directions Ensemble celebrates the centennial of Stravinsky’s Histoire du soldat by performing the suite extracted from the original work. The concert will also feature Catch and Release, a work written in 2006 by Finnish composer and conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen to both accompany and honor l’Histoire. Memories and an homage to the past are also at the core of 1987 by British composer Anna Clyne and Jennifer Higdon’s Zaka, a work written for Eighth Blackbird and described as a ¨fantastic sprint full of irresistible Stravinskian energy and rhythmic drive¨

PROGRAM: Salonen- Catch and Release; Clyne- 1987; Higdon-Zaka; Stravinsky- Soldier's Tale Suite
