British singer-songwriter David Gray has been recording and performing his earnest and impassioned music for more than 20 years now -- and it was his fourth album, White Ladder, that catapulted him to superstardom. With four Brit Award nominations, multiple chart-topping albums and hugely successful singles like "Babylon," "This Year's Love," "Sail Away" and "Please Forgive Me," it's safe to say that his career has been an auspicious one. Now, hot on the heels of the release of his 10th studio album, Mutineers, Gray is back on the road and bringing his passionate live show to the stage of the beautiful Merriweather Post Pavilion.

The Atlas Performing Arts Center is relatively new to me, but I've enjoyed every event I've been to there. The adaptation of a classic movie theater for use as a center with several venues makes The Atlas an interesting and fun place worth a visit on its own.Sannidhi (Sacred Space) info • Mar 31 2014 star this tip starred

About The Program
Stephen Albert’s *_Treestone*_ is a collection of moments captured from the story of Tristan and Iseult from Finnegan’s Wake, set for soprano, tenor and chamber orchestra. “The story of Tristan is communicated in coded fragments by different persons, challenging our reason and powers of intuition,” writes Albert in his program notes. “Our associative memory is forced to the edge, deciphering and piecing together Joyce’s abbreviated, irreverent and often deranged version of the tale.” *
Daniel Felsenfeld’s *_*The Curse of Sophistication*_ takes its title from a line in an Elvis Costello song, as do the movement titles—though there its relationship with Mr. Costello ends. “Anyone who toils in the garden of so-called high art knows its traps and pitfalls, its unfairnesses and inequities, its Obsessions, Temptations, and Posessions. It can be a family, high culture; it can also be a foe, a difficult climb and, indeed, a curse,” says Felsenfeld. This concerto was written for GNE pianist Molly Orlando Palmiero and Great Noise Ensemble, and receives its world premiere at this performance. *
Aleksandra Vrebalov’s *_*Transparent Walls*_ is a meditation on the subtle, often invisible relatedness among everything, those connections we see only in rare moments of clarity. Vrebalov says, “In those moments it seems that time slows down and lets us glimpse through otherwise opaque walls that all of a sudden become transparent, become like a magnifying glass. And we see through, we feel the force of knowledge, we feel the timelessness that consumed us, and an eye-blink later, we are back, with walls opaque again. In this piece, I explore the moment of being in front of transparent walls, with answers just about to reveal themselves, while the moment in time is stretched to an unidentifiable length and we are generously let in.”
