DAVIS: You Have the Right to Remain Silent
About this event
Written in 2010 by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Anthony Davis, ‘You Have the Right to Remain Silent’ was inspired by Davis’ and others’ interactions with the police. Anthony McGill, clarinet soloist, plays the part of the accused and the orchestra, the part of the interrogator. The text of the Miranda warning is spoken by the orchestra and “any citizen will feel...the tension, the aggressivity, the menace, the power, the mean aspect and the anxiety" (Langrée) of these words. The second movement, “Loss” includes a duet between McGill and live processed sound performed by Earl Howard. The concerto is a synthesis of American music styles from free jazz, modernism, hip-hop and others. Music Director Louis Langrée leads the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra in this performance of the dark yet resilient work, ‘You Have the Right to Remain Silent.’
This stream is available to watch until December 31, 2023.
