The volcanic singer-pianist Diamanda Galás has become known as the great avenger for the dispossessed, via pivotal works such as Plague Mass and Masque of the Red Death (for AIDS sufferers), Schrei 27 (for torture victims) and Defixiones (for the dead of the Armenian holocaust). The dark queen of extended vocal technique is the possessor of multi-octave pipes awesome and frightening in their intensity and range; her voice and equally formidable piano chops are thrilling in their brazen invention and sneering disregard for restrictions of musical genre. Tonight’s program includes selections from her recent All The Way and At Saint Thomas the Apostle Harlem albums (Intravenal Sound Operations), which feature an intriguingly curated selection of gospel and spiritual tunes, her settings of 18th-century European poetry, classic country (including a deeply moving redo of Ralph Stanley’s “O Death”), and plenty hair-raising more.
