Sukkot Through Orion’s Nebula
Posted By James Lee III
This orchestral work was a commission from the Sphinx Commissioning Consortium. It was premiered by Michael Tilson Thomas and the New World Symphony Orchestra in Miami Beach, FL in October 2011. The piece serves as a musical commentary on the ancient Hebrew harvest festival. This is paired with the celestial harvest scene through the Orion nebula as is referred to in the biblical book of Revelation chapter 14.
