The performance pairs classic songs from Simon’s extensive catalog with cutting edge new arrangements performed by the ensemble and composed by leading voices in contemporary classical music, including Marcos Balter, Bryce Dessner, Gabriel Kahane, Son Lux, Missy Mazzoli, and Andrew Norman. Highlighting the poetry and masterful songwriting of Simon’s original works through thoughtful interpretations that reflect each composer’s unique style, this collaboration re-imagines some of the world’s most iconic and important songs with Simon himself at the helm.
