For our first concert of 2017, Cantori New York will present Tyger Tyger, a new commission by Polish composer Dariusz Przybylski based on the poetry of William Blake. The program also includes the rarely-performed Seven Songs of Experience by Gerard Victory, plus motets by Orlando Gibbons and Richard Farrant.
Our commission of Przybylski’s Tyger Tyger was made possible by a generous grant from the Roger Shapiro Fund for New Music.
