A New Sounds Live co-presentation hosted by WNYC’s John Schaefer
Streamed live on Q2 Music
San Fermin, the eight-piece band led by the classically-trained Ellis Ludwig-Leone, has been praised for their “epic and emotion-laden rock, with glorious and operatic vocals” (New Yorker). Ludwig-Leone and several of its members will join forces with New York mainstays NOW Ensemble for an evening of fresh, ambitious music combining the elegance of chamber music with the vitality of pop. They will perform orchestrations of San Fermin songs and premiere new works by Ludwig-Leone and NOW’s Mark Dancigers, a classical composer with a deep background in rock whose music has been acclaimed as “entrancing” (New York Times), “fresh and vibrant” (Classical Review).
