LA JOLLA SYMPHONY & CHORUS'S RECENT ANCIENT NOISES CONCERT WILL BE BROADCAST ON UCSD-TV on Friday, January Thirteenth, at 8:30 pm, and on several subsequent dates. Two brilliant folk-tales from the early twentieth century: Stravinsky's portrait of a folk wedding in pagan Russia, featuring four pianists, chamber chorus, and Lux Boreal dancers choreographed by UCSD's Allyson Green; and Bartok's magical story of nine young hunters transformed into wild stags scored for orchestra and chorus. Plus two much more recent pieces: György Ligeti's daring work for 100 metronomes, each at a different tempo, and David Lang's rambunctious Grind to a Halt.
