Tyshawn Sorey: For George Lewis | Autoschediasms

As “arresting a figure in contemporary classical and experimental new music as he is in jazz (New York Times),” and a recipient of the MacArthur Fellowship in 2017, Tyshawn Sorey has carved out his own territory as a musician and composer whose range of vision, emotion and visceral power is a driving and defining force behind a young Black vanguard in new music. This pristinely recorded collaboration with the vaunted chamber orchestra Alarm Will Sound documents two unique works by Sorey — the stately "For George Lewis" and the intens "Autoschediasms." Taken together, these performances find the composer testing the limits of the ensemble’s imagination and concentration, and paint a wide-angle sonic canvas that is by turns taut, trenchant, and profoundly moving.
