Buy Tickets

Prepare for a beautiful underwater adventure with Karim Al-Zand’s Studies in Nature, inspired by the captivating illustrations of biologist and naturalist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919). Listen to how Al-Zand transforms the delicate and kaleidoscopic designs in his three movements “Sea Lillies”, “Radiolara”, and “Jellyfish” for viola, harp, and flute. Next, descend into Saariaho’s fantastical underworld with her ethereal work for harp and electronics, “Fall” a snippet from her ballet, Maa (“Land”). Look through Frank Lloyd Wright’s art glass windows in Andrew Norman’s Light Screens, while recalling frontier landscapes, complete with lively dynamicism.
