The Kindred Spirits Orchestra presents uniquely orchestrated compositions from two unique European masters of twentieth century music. Deeply touched by his fellow composer’s death, and scored for tubular bell and string orchestra, Arvo Pärt’s Cantus in Memoriam Benjamin Britten is a mournful and meditative elegy. Dmitri Shostakovich’s most extraordinarily scored symphony is his Fourteenth. Written for two solo voices, string orchestra and percussion, this work is a profound ode to the power of suffering and death. Presented in original (Russian) language with surtitles in English.
In commemoration of the 20th anniversary of 9/11.
