Folk-inspired melodies are transformed into passionate, sweeping works. A pastoral romance, The Lark Ascending features soaring violin solo with orchestra. Five Mystical Songs express intense love and praise. A work by Nico Muhly, “one of the most celebrated and sought-after classical composers of the last decade” (The Guardian), is premiered. A joyous, triumphant Te Deum serves as a festive season finale.
Join us for a pre-concert talk with Nico Muhly in Perry Auditorium (7th floor of the Cathedral) at 3:00 p.m.!
