On Wednesday 6 October, the American Symphony Orchestra will open its Vanguard Series at Carnegie Hall with a performance entitled “James Joyce.”  The program  features a pair of pieces by composers whose work Joyce admired: George Antheil’s “Ballet Méchanique” and Othmar Schoeck’s “Lebendig Begraden, Op. 40.”  In addition, this performance will will feature the U.S. premiere of  a cantata by Mátyás Seiber entitled “Ulysses” that was inspired by Joyce’s epic novel.
