New sounds in music
Salvatore Sciarrino’s glistening Tre Notturni Brillanti serves as the first course to a program celebrating the broad possibilities of listening. Andreia Pinto Correia’s This White Silence and Liza Lim’s The Heart’s Ear probe how we listen to what is within us. Unsuk Chin’s tour de force Acrostic Wordplay, featuring soprano Marisol Montalvo, deconstructs how we understand language and assign meaning during a time when words must be created to describe the new.
