Dalia Stasevska returns to lead a Thanksgiving weekend of music that calls us home. Music drawn from the American heartland opens the program, with the beloved “Goin’ Home” theme from Dvořák’s New World Symphony, George Walker’s Lyric for Strings, and bass-baritone Davóne Tines performing Saariaho’s True Fire, a work based on Native American texts, Emerson’s Spiritual Laws, and other texts, collaged together by Aleksi Barrière. Sibelius’s Fifth Symphony provides a finale of sweeping and grand themes, evoking the spirit of Stasevska's own Finnish homeland.
Dramaturg: Aleksi Barrière / Texts: Ralph Waldo Emerson, Seamus Heaney, Trad. Native American, Mahmoud Darwish
