‘Signal & the Wordless Music Orchestra Presents Jonny Greenwood+Gyorgy Ligeti’


Attention, Radiohead fans: we know that you’re desperate for them to tour after their last album, but their artiest member won’t bow his guitar for you tonight. As Greenwood proved with his wonderfully creepy score to There Will Be Blood, he’s a real composer. This show serves as the U.S. premiere of his high-drama, tear-jerking work “Doghouse,” appropriately along with Ligeti’s austere “Chamber Concerto” and Glass/Bowie/Eno’s “Symphony No. 4” (based on “Heroes”). If Lincoln Center makes you squeamish, get your high-art on here. With Gyorgy Ligeti.

Fri., May 20, 8 p.m.; Sat., May 21, 8 p.m., 2011
