The Stereo Hideout Orchestra will join Brahms and Radiohead within the Brooklyn Live performance
After Broadway’s Rocktopia explores the intersection of classic and rock legends, an event in Brooklyn will do the same, merging Brahms and Radiohead. The Stereo Hideout Orchestra, led by composer and conductor Steve Hackman, will perform Brahms V. Radiohead on May 19th at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn.
The performance will include the 55-piece orchestra, along with guest singers Will Post, Andrew Lipke and Kéren Tayár, who interweave Brahms’ first symphony with Radiohead’s 1997 album OK Computer.
Hackman has previously offered a mix of classical and contemporary music with orchestras such as the Boston Pops, Pittsburgh Symphony, and Nashville Symphony, although the May event marks the first time this piece has been performed with Stereo Hideout.
“The Brahms 1st and the OK computer share a brooding fear and pathos; this is music full of fear,” explains Hackman. “In Radiohead’s case, fear of increasing social alienation, obsessive consumerism, political toxicity and emotional isolation. As for Brahms, he said.” was under tremendous pressure to deliver a spectacular first symphony after he was announced as Beethoven’s successor. “
