High Notes:



Project Orfeo

Project Orfeo: concert of words and music inspired by Richard Powers’ novel Orfeo with
Richard Powers, author
The Horszowski Trio: Jesse Mills, violin • Raman Ramakrishnan, cello • Rieko Aizawa, piano
Benjamin Fingland, clarinet
Laura Gilbert, flute
Jonathan Bagg, viola
and a new work by Duke composer Scott Lindroth

The Orfeo Project is an evening-long entertainment that includes a narrative reflection by Mr. Powers on Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. The eight movements will be punctuated by a moving account of the work’s 1941 premiere, drawn from the pages of his novel. The evening begins with "Cadences" by Scott Lindroth, a new work inspired by Powers' probing ideas about the music of our time.
