NightMusic III

Monday, March 14, 2011

This is another part in the series, "NightMusic"  an hour of works that evoke the darkness, the stillness, the mystery and the uncertainty of night.  We'll hear "Dark Was The Night" a song without words from Phil Kline's apocalyptic mass, "John the Revelator," featuring the vocal group Lionheart and the quartet Ethel.  Plus, music by John Adams, his powerful and terrifying "Night Chorus" from the opera "The Death of Klinghoffer," and other works.
