David Lang Lecture
University of Iowa Art Building West — Wed., Sept. 16 at 7:30 pm
David Lang is one of the United States’ most performed composers and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including the Pulitzer Prize. He was Musical America’s Composer of the Year in 2013, and Carnegie Hall’s Debs Composer’s Chair for 2013–2014.
As a UI College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Alumni Fellow, this discussion will be part of the Creative Matters lecture series sponsored by the UI Offie of Research and Economic Development, presentated in collaboration with the UI Arts Advancement Committee. The event is free and open to the public.
In the words of The New Yorker, “With his winning of the Pulitzer Prize for the little match girl passion (one of the most original and moving scores of recent years), Lang, once a postminimalist enfant terrible, has solidified his standing as an American master.”
