Composing The Sound Electric Classical
Music<http://www.nysun.com/related_results.php?term=Classical+Music&topic=TRUE>

By ALAN LOCKWOOD
September 4, 2007

South Street Seaport's Spiegeltent might be more readily associated with
after-hours burlesque, but tonight it welcomes experimentation of a
different sort when French composer Philippe
Manoury<http://www.nysun.com/related_results.php?term=Philippe+Manoury>,
known for works such as "En Echo," which weaves electronic music with text
based on Vladimir Nabokov's character Lolita, presents a commissioned world
premiere at the venue.

The performance, which features three works including "En Echo," the
commissioned "Cruel Spirals," which sets poems by Jerome
Rothenberg<http://www.nysun.com/related_results.php?term=Jerome+Rothenberg>to
the singing of soprano Tony Arnold, and "Last," will be the first
presentation of Mr. Manoury's work in New York since a concert at New York
University in 2005.
