Glass

April 29

“Music is as life, humanity, and the world itself: diverse, full of complex world views and lived experiences, and shared by and crucial to every corner of humanity. But, like glass, it is transparent. In this program, we explore music by living composers written for full orchestra, chamber ensemble, and solo timpani. This is music of varied lives and experiences – from brutal and hopeless Soviet oppression (Ustvolskaya) to our modern Canada (Fung and Lizée). The concert includes the heavily intoxicating world of Philip Glass’ Akhnaten, where the dark repeating pulses ritualistically hypnotize us, as if the ancient Egyptian Book of the Dead opens, and a hand from times of yore reaches out and slowly but firmly grabs us and pulls us into another dimension.”
– Alexander Prior
