ABOVE/BELOW Concert with Sonya Lifschitz
Concert with Sonya Lifschitz
ABOVE/BELOW is a musical reflection on the cosmic mechanics of time and the earthly cycles of life. The program juxtaposes two great works from the 19th and the 20th centuries inspired by the twelve months of the year and the twelve houses of the Zodiac. The poetic lyricism of Tchaikovsky’s Seasons is contrasted with the enigmatic, mythical sonorities of George Crumb’s Makrokosmos (Book 1), weaving a beguiling journey through the calendar year.
