David Lang

David Lang has most recently been quoted in an article called where have classical music’s uppercase letters gone?. David Lang said, “I really know that it is a hopeless affectation. And I always feel very apologetic about it because I'm not trying to do anything particularly fancy. It feels like I'm not trying to say, Well, Beethoven did this, and now it's my turn to do that. When you write it uppercase – 'Death Speaks' – it feels so definitive. Lowercase – 'death speaks' – feels so mysterious and intimate.”.
