Members of Ensemble intercontemporain—the premier ensemble for contemporary music—and its Music Director Matthias Pintscher join Fellows for Olivier Messiaen’s epic 12-movement masterpiece From the canyons to the stars… Inspired by visits to Utah’s Bryce Canyon and Zion National Park, nature enthusiast Messiaen captured the scenic wonders in a work that spans 90 minutes with solo features for piano, violin, horn and percussion. This performance will feature immersive multimedia projections by Hicham Berrada across the New World Center’s architectural sails, where the towering red rocks and fluttering birds will come to life.
