Carnegie Hall Citywide: Ensemble Connect

Wednesday, August 11, 2021 6 PM Madison Square Park
Ensemble Connect by Richard Termine
Join Ensemble Connect to reflect on our fragile relationship with nature alongside artist-architect Maya Lin’s Ghost Forest installation. The musicians perform Danish composer Hans Abrahamsen’s wind quintet Walden, inspired by Thoreau’s iconic journal of life in the woods and his desire to rediscover humanity’s lost unity with nature. There are also selections from Hannah Lash’s Leander and Hero—a work detailing the life of two migratory birds and the effects of changing weather patterns—plus works by Beach, Piazzolla, Still, and others that take listeners on a meditative journey.

Part of: Carnegie Hall Citywide
