Description With his new evening-length work, The Heart Cries with Many Voices, Rhys Chatham, the master of layering restless rock over classical harmonics, takes a fresh and provocative look at the roots of western art music. Scored for eight guitars, electric bass, drums, and mixed chorus, this is post-everything mutant music encompassing medieval to heavy metal. Among the outstanding musicians joining Rhys for this concert are: Jonathan Kane, Robert Poss, Karen Haglof, Ron Spitzer, Susan Stenger, Ben Neill, Mary Hastings, Evans Wahlforth, and Mitch Salmen, with Gwendolyn Toth conduciting the mixed chorus.
