The music of Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir evokes landscapes and longing, contrasting ethereal clouds of sound and powerful sonic experiments. In this evening’s portrait concert, the music begins outside the concert hall—the audience standing—before moving into the Board of Officers Room for the New York premiere of In the Light of Air, in which the music’s lyrical gestures combine with a luminous visual installation.

There is no late seating.

This performance is approximately one hour and five minutes with no intermission.
