Composer Portrait: David T. Little

Widely admired as an opera composer, David T. Little applies his potent theatrical instincts to his instrumental works. This Miller Theatre “Composer Portrait” features two of his most provocative pieces. “Haunt of Last Nightfall,” inspired by a 1981 military massacre in El Salvador, is performed by Third Coast Percussion, the Chicago quartet that commissioned it. The American Contemporary Music Ensemble handles “AGENCY,” a string quartet encoded with subliminal references to global intelligence organizations and Australian Aboriginal lore.
