July 26 6:00pm
On July 25 & 26, TILT Brass joins members of Contemporaneous, The Crossing, eighth blackbird, Face the Music, Hotel Elefant, and JACK Quartet (among many others) to give the World Premiere of John Luther Adams’ Sila: The Breath of the World. The new piece was commissioned by Mostly Mozart and Lincoln Center Out of Doors. From the LC Out of Doors website:
“Following the Alaska-based, 2014 Pulitzer Prize-winning composer’s acclaimed Inuksuit, this site-determined piece flows from Adams’ ongoing engagement with sound in outdoor space. Inspired by the Inuit concept of sila, the spirit that animates the world, 80 leading contemporary musicians are guided by the pace of their own breaths, blending composition and sonic environment into an expansive and immersive listening experience.”
This performance is FREE to the public.
