A world premiere from composer Michael Abels, At War With Ourselves is an evening-length work for string quartet, chorus and spoken word, originally commissioned by new music’s premier ensemble, the Kronos Quartet, who perform for these two exclusive nights. Best known as the soundtrack composer for writer/director Jordan Peele’s Oscar-winning 2017 horror film Get Out and 2019 follow-up Us, Abels blends modern classical composition with popular forms rooted in the American tradition.
