Performing with his eponymous ensemble of 10 electronic guitars, Glenn Branca premiered Symphonies No. 8 and No. 10 at The Kitchen to conjunction with the release of two new CDs. Also known as The Mystery Part 1 and The Mystery Part 2, Branca’s two works composed an orchestral narrative that was influenced by classical music, late Romanticism, and alternative rock. Symmetrical, both parts were made of two movements of approximately fifteen minutes; Symphony No. 8 featured The Passion and Spiritual Anarchy, and Symphony No. 10 included The Final Problem and The Horror. Conducted by Glenn Branca, the two symphonies were performed by Steven Antonelli, Miriam McDonough, Virgil Moorefield, Eric Hubel, John Myers, Brannon Hungness, Dave Reid, Phil Kline, Wharton Tiers, Carolyn Master, and Ellen Watkins.
