So play one of their signature works, Reich’s Music For Pieces of Wood, their performance of which The New York Times declared “was like watching whirling dervishes enter an intensely focused, disciplined trance.” They also play Music For Wood and Strings, by The National guitarist Bryce Dessner, a work written especially for So. The concert culminates in Timeline, a vibrant forty-five-minute song cycle recently commissioned from Shara Nova and So Percussion by Carnegie Hall.
