    Gabriel Kahane – Magnificent Bird with the Oregon Symphony

    Oregon Symphony joins Patricia Reser Center for the Arts’ Grand Opening Spring Season with the orchestral world premiere of Gabriel Kahane’s Magnificent Bird, a new song cycle written in the final month of a year-long, complete hiatus from the internet. At once intimate and ambitious, Kahane’s latest work toggles between personal loss and a series of public crises that continue to roil the nation. Interspersed among this new collection of songs are selections from Book of Travelers, Gabriel’s musical account of an 8,980-mile train trip that he took in the aftermath of the 2016 election, as well as the uproarious Twitterkreis, nano-songs he began to release serially on Instagram in 2018. Equal parts raconteur, songwriter, and cultural critic, Kahane promises to shepherd the audience through a cathartic evening that probes our individual and collective relationships to technology, and the consequences that emerge from the contemporary digital regime: to our planet, our body politic, our dignity, and, perhaps most crucially, our ability to love.
