FIREWORKS ENSEMBLE

Fireworks Ensemble
Ulrich Krieger, conductor and musical director

Lou Reed’s (b. 1942) music written for the Velvet Underground propelled him to rock stardom. His Metal Machine Music, a distorted sound wall of guitar feedback, has been called the precursor to punk. Critical rejection at its first release in 1975 led to a cult-like interest. Ulrich Krieger has accomplished a feat once deemed impossible by transcribing and arranging Metal Machine Music for classical instruments.

Miller Theatre at Columbia University
