Ocean Breakup – curated by Stephanie Griffin
“Ocean Breakup explores the literary connection between tales of heartbreak and tales of the sea. In classical music, perhaps the most famous instance of this is Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde. Versatile soprano Ariadne Greif joins Momenta and friends in the world premiere of Stephanie Griffin’s chamber arrangement of the “Liebestod” from Tristan und Isolde, with additional works by Alba Potes, Carl Bettendorf, Guy Barash, and Stephanie Griffin.” – Stephanie Griffin

Program:

Stephanie Griffin: Poem from Exile

Alba Potes: Oleajes
