Stanford Live

Breakaway contemporary Viennese composer Heinz Karl Gruber’s Frankenstein mixes his classical, Schoenbergian 12-tone and Vienna Boys’ Choir influences to amazing effect. His version of this classic tale of man’s ill-fated quest to transcend
biology (and mortality) is a true monster mash-up with bells and whistles. Gruber has sung the narrative chansonnier role a thousand times, often with the BBC Philharmonic, where he is conductor. Now baritone Tyler Duncan and percussionist Dustin Donahue join the St. Lawrence String Quartet andother musicians for a unique take on Gruber’s eloquently chaotic vision.
