About this show

Maria Schneider's music has been hailed by critics as "evocative, majestic, magical, heart-stoppingly gorgeous, and beyond categorization." Her recent work, 'Carlos Drummond de Andrade Stories,' was commissioned by the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra for soprano, Dawn Upshaw, and Maria is presently working on a piece commissioned by the Kronos Quartet for a 2010 premier. As a follow-up to her first ArtistShare commission, debuted in 2009, the never-before-heard work from her Spring 2010 ArtistShare commission project will be premiered here at Birdland during this five-night engagement.
