Sō Percussion displays its “exhilarating blend of precision and anarchy” (New Yorker) during a colorful journey from Istanbul to Paris. Mozart’s Turkish-tinged overture paves the way to David Lang’s virtuosic percussion concerto, crafted from found objects. Ottoman flavors return in Lully’s music for Le Bourgeois gentilhomme, tucked into the French pomp and elegance that is echoed by Mozart in the sensational symphony that marked his Parisian debut.
