For the first time, Philharmonia brings PBO SESSIONS to Stanford witha program that showcases the synergies between old and new music. Pulitzer Prize-winning composer and performer Caroline Shaw presents several of her acclaimed compositions with Philharmonia Baroque Chamber Players, alongside works by Baroque and Classical composers that directly influenced her writing. Countertenor Daniel Moody will perform music old and new, and composers Bálint Karosi and Grace-Evangeline Mason will contribute their new works as well in a historically-informed program that will captivate the ears of early music enthusiasts as much as those who crave contemporary cadence. PBO's Nicholas McGegan and star mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter will join in discussion of new music for old instruments. KQED journalist and personality Rachael Myrow returns to PBO SESSIONS to moderate this cabaret-style experience, complete with no host bar.
