25th Anniversary Tour
Featuring the new work: “the wood and the vine” by David Lang, co-commissioned by the Newman Center for the Performing Arts
Renowned for their unearthly vocal blend and virtuosic ensemble singing, the four women of Anonymous 4 combine historical scholarship with contemporary performance intuition to create their magical sound. The ensemble has performed on major concert series and at festivals throughout North America, Europe, and Asia, including appearances at Tanglewood, Wolftrap, BBC Proms, Edinburgh Festival and the Brisbane Biennial. Enchanted both by their live performances and by their eighteen recordings of medieval, contemporary, and American music, Anonymous 4's listeners have bought nearly two million copies of the group's albums on the harmonia mundi label.
"A4 has lost none of its perfection of tone and ensemble. This should be a regular item every Christmas." — Fanfare
