Heiner Goebbels, conception, music, and director
Gertrude Stein's memoir Wars I Have Seen is a deeply personal glimpse at life in France under the looming Nazi occupation. Visionary music director Heiner Goebbels, who returns to Lincoln Center after his acclaimed Stifters Dinge, combines Stein's text, spoken by female members of the ensembles, with a score that pairs Baroque music with staccato machine-gun fire. Remixing Baroque music also features in Sampler Suite, a compelling ensemble work that includes samples of Jewish cantors recorded in the 1920s and 1930s.
