Description

One of the most celebrated and influential ensembles of our time returns to Royce Hall in an extraordinary concert that demonstrates the restorative power of music. First performed on the fifth anniversary of September 11th, this deeply moving response to the events of that day pulls together music from more than a dozen nations-including Uzbekistan, Germany, Iran, Sweden, Iraq, and the United States-to create a rich tapestry of global voices.

Journeying from the fervent calls of traditional Muslim prayers to the chaos of Michael Gordon’s The Sad Park (based on recordings of children’s reactions to 9/11), to Osvaldo Golijov and Gustavo Santaolalla’s worldless requiem Darkness 9/11 to Terry Riley’s soul-stirring One Earth, One People, One Love, the program “alarms, terrifies, soothes and ultimately proposes a measure of hope” [Financial Times], as it envisions one world united in a common humanity.
