Incubated at SummerWorks four years ago, this work finally receives its full premiere. Melancholiac is an evening celebrating the music of maverick musician Scott Walker, from his teen idol years with the Walker Brothers to his introspective takes on Jacques Brel to his final album in collaboration with Sunn O)), Soused. Bringing together the interpretive talents of Gregory Oh & Adam Paolozza, Melancholiac – part concert, part spectacle, part existential talk-show – will span Walker’s incredible career which came to a close with his passing earlier this year.
