The most breathtaking musical event this spring will bring together one of the most successful concept albums of all time — Radiohead’s OK COMPUTER — with one of the most important symphonies ever — Brahm’s 1st — in an epic performance at Kings Theatre Saturday, May 19.
Brooklyn Brahms V. Radiohead is the newest opus from Stereo Hideout Orchestra, whose composer Steve Hackman has married other modern and classical maestros before, like Björk and Bartók, Bon Iver and Aaron Copland. This will be Stereo Hideout’s first NYC performance, and they have hired some of Brooklyn’s most brilliant musicians for the 55-piece orchestra and three vocalists who will be seamlessly layering Radiohead’s motifs and lyrics into Brahms’ masterpiece.
“The Brahms 1st and OK Computer are two of the most iconic, beloved works in their respective genres,” says Hackman. “This is the chance to hear each through the lens of the other, in a combination that is overwhelming and transformative.”
This must-see mashup is also a perfect fit for Kings Theatre, a classic landmark that has been revitalized for a new era. If you haven’t been since it reopened three years ago, this is the performance to catch.
