Carnegie Hall Citywide: Ensemble Connect

Wednesday, July 14, 2021 6 PM Madison Square Park
Ensemble Connect by Claudio Papapietro
Ensemble Connect explores our paradoxical relationship with nature and the wide-ranging emotions it inspires: deep wonder, irretrievable loss, hope, and awe. Music by Messiaen, Copland, Kaija Saariaho, and others put these emotions into focus. From the “Appel interstellaire” (“Interstellar Call”) from Messiaen’s Des canyons aux étoiles … to the evocation of water in Reena Esmail’s Rivers—plus music that addresses abstract moments of tension, stillness, and grief—Ensemble Connect inspires us to consider nature in new ways. 

Part of: Carnegie Hall Citywide
