The ACFNY is pleased to present the Aleph Guitar Quartet and vocalist Daisy Press in a program featuring two US premieres, one of which is Bernhard Lang's "The Cold Trip Part 1" - a completely new musical approach to the classic of Schubert's "Winterreise". It was commissioned by the Austrian Cultural Forum New York and the Berliner Festspiele. Lang speaks of "explosion" and "detonation" when recycling, reworking or over-writing historical music. In this case, with his looping, editing and sampling techniques he creates a palimpsest over the original sounds and structures of these romantic songs. Out of the "Winterreise" comes a meta-composition - "The Cold Trip".
