Alarm Will Sound


In “1969,” Alarm Will Sound artistic director Alan Pierson offers up that yin-yang year as the event horizon for all pop modernism. The composition is a promising, multimedia nostalgia-gasm featuring music of the Beatles, Karlheinz Stockhausen, Luciano Berio, Leonard Bernstein, and Peter Schickele. If you’ve ever had a hankering to hear “Revolution 9,” chunks of “Hymnen,” and “Much Too Soon” (from Oh! Calcutta) in the course of an evening, here’s your big chance.
