Program:
Hesperus is Phosphorus - Lewis Spratlan

When composers and musicians are inspired by words — by poems or stories or simple everyday talk between friends — they find new and expressive ways to make those words part of the music itself. In this collaborative program, the Philadelphia-based Network for New Music joins the dazzling singers of The Crossing, directed by Donald Nally, in the world premiere of a major new chamber work by Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Lewis Spratlan, described by the New York Times as “a master of timbres and how to blend them.” Hesperus is Phosphorus takes the form of a secular Vespers service; drawing on the words of American poets, playwrights, and physicists, Spratlan’s beautiful new work explores growth and loss in our ever-expanding world of discovery.
