San Diego, CA—Become Desert

April 13 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm

BECOME DESERT & STRAVINSKY’S FIREBIRD
Steven Schick, conductor
San Diego Master Chorale

ANNA THORVALDSDOTTIR: Metacosmos
STRAVINSKY: Suite from The Firebird
JOHN LUTHER ADAMS: Become Desert (SDSO co-commission & premiere)

Explore the austere mystery of the desert as we begin our January annual festival, “In the Name of the Earth.” Based on a Russian fairy tale, The Firebird is a dramatic story of courage and redemption. Stravinsky’s brilliant and colorful fairy tale ballet is bookended by tone poems depicting the vast and beautiful solitude of landscapes: Icelandic composer and UC San Diego alumna Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s Metacosmos and John Luther Adams’ Become Desert— the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer’s new work where the orchestra surrounds the audience in an unforgettable experience.

Part of “In the Name of the Earth” festival.
