AT WAR WITH OURSELVES – 400 YEARS OF YOU

from the SFJAZZ website:

At War With Ourselves – 400 Years of You is an evening-length work for string quartet, chorus and spoken word commissioned by new music’s premier ensemble, the Kronos Quartet, who perform for these two exclusive nights with a choir directed by Valérie Sainte-Agathe.

Part of the Hewlett 50 initiative and co-commissioned with SFJAZZ, the work is composed by Michael Abels, who has recently come to prominence for his scores for Jordan Peele’s films Get Out and Us. His orchestral work Global Warming has been received over 100 performances by the nation’s most prominent symphony orchestras, and he has received commissions from the Nashville Symphony, the Chicago Sinfonietta and the Los Angeles Opera.

At War with Ourselves – 400 Years of You was commissioned by the Kronos Performing Arts Association, funded in part by a Hewlett Foundation 50 Arts Commission and the MAP Fund, in partnership with ASU Gammage at Arizona State University, Hancher Auditorium–The University of Iowa, Krannert Center for the Performing Arts/University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, SFJAZZ, Texas Performing Arts at UT Austin, and University of South Carolina.
