concerto (world to come)
cello and orchestra
A cellist and her voice become separated from each other, and they struggle to reunite in a post-apocalyptic spiritual environment. world to come
is a kind of prayer—introspective and highly personal. It is a meditation on hope and hopelessness, asking fundamental questions about the death and life of the soul.
world to come
was written for Maya Beiser and commissioned by Carnegie Hall, the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, UC Santa Cruz Arts & Lectures, On the Boards, and Connecticut College, with support from Meet The Composer.
