Alberto Ginastera's searing, daring, beautiful, and rarely heard Cantata Para America Magica for soprano and percussion orchestra will be performed by soprano Lucy Shelton with the Talujon Percussion Group, pianist Ursula Oppens, and performers from the Brooklyn, Queens, and Purchase College Conservatories of Music. In addition, the evening will feature Ginastera's Guitar Sonata, Op. 47, performed by David Leisner, and George Crumb's "Voice of the Whale," and "Night Music I," an exquisite setting of the poetry of Federico Garcia Lorca.
