Event Information

Two of the world’s leading composers join Music Mondays for a program of entrancing, mystical music that envelops the listener in sound. Kaija Saariaho’s fluid, beguiling works (such as L’amour de Loin, a critical and popular success at the Met in 2016) have made her a leading voice in music today; Jean-Baptiste Barrière’s works intermingle acoustic and electronic sounds to build new sonic landscapes, as heard in a portion of his new opera, The 38th Parallel, a tale of Korean displacement and immigration. Charismatic violinist Jennifer Koh (“one of our most thoughtful and intense musicians,” N Y Times), bass-baritone Davóne Tines (“immense power and fervor,” L A Times), and flutist Camilla Hoitenga (“explosive,” N Y Times) perform in what promises to be an immersive musical experience.
