Of Other Worlds: Orchestra Concert

Cabrillo Festival's Grand Finale centerpiece is composer Nico Muhly's song cycle Impossible Things—a setting of poems by C.P. Cavafy. Of the work, the New Yorker says “Muhly has found his own musical language, a lyricism underpinned by subtle tension, and it achieves uncanny alignment with the lights and shadows of Cavafy’s poetry.” Impossible Things receives its West Coast premiere featuring tenor Nicholas Phan and Festival Concertmaster Justin Bruns. Two further West Coast premieres are offered by Pierre Jalbert and Michael Gandolfi, and along with a work from Missy Mazzoli combine to contemplate our planet Earth, the vast cosmos, and fantastical human interpretations of each.
