This evening’s program on the enchanted grounds of the General Theological Seminary in Chelsea features three works that contemplate life and encourage us to look at the sky in search of answers. There will be a New York Premiere of “The Nature of Light” by 2016 Festival Composer-in-Residence Michael Gandolfi followed by a World Premiere of a Festival-commissioned piece by composer J. P. Redmond whose piece for Chamber Orchestra and soprano is inspired by the poetry of John Donne.
The performances of the Verona Quartet are generously underwritten by the Beethoven-Haus Bonn in memory of Kurt Masur (1927-2015).
Evening’s musicians: soprano Gillian Bell, solo clarnet Vera Kaner, Verona Quartet among others, conductor Ken-David Masur
