This is the pre­miere of my new piece “Future Gen­er­a­tions,” which sets turn-of-the-20th-century poetry by socialist/writer/activist Avrom Reyzen to a lush 21st cen­tury mod­ernist sound­scape. I began research­ing the text (and brush­ing up on my Yid­dish) ear­lier this spring and then spent the rest of the spring and sum­mer writ­ing the music — so come enjoy the fruits of my labor! The set will also include instru­men­tal pieces from Bop Kabbalah’s debut CD (Tzadik Records) and newer unrecorded music. This is your last chance to hear the band in 2016 and your first chance to hear us with vocal­ists.
