Description

This immersive, meditative musical journey brings together music from across eight centuries that speak to eternity – including Olivier Messiaen’s transcendent Quartet for the End of Time, featuring violinist Miranda Cuckson (“prodigiously talented,” New York Times), cellist Raman Ramakrishnan (“played with lovely authority,” New York Times), clarinetist Charles Neidich ("an artist of uncommon merit," The New Yorker), and pianist Aaron Wunsch (“masterful,” Hartford Courant). The ravishing male voices of the Trident Ensemble interweave vocal works from the ancient to the contemporary throughout the program.
