Share in the excitement as MTT and the NWS Fellows give a sneak peek of their upcoming Carnegie Hall performance! MTT appears as both conductor and composer in Four Preludes on Playthings of the Wind, his setting of Carl Sandberg’s poem about civilization and fate. Featuring dynamite soprano Measha Brueggergosman, backup vocalists, a bar band of jazz musicians and a chamber orchestra, it pays homage to MTT’s musical influences, including Igor Stravinsky, Sarah Vaughan, James Brown and more.
