Spirit of the Wild
A vision of nature
Chief Conductor Umberto Clerici will be captain of this voyage to some of the wildest natural places. John Luther Adams’ visceral work Become Ocean does more than evoke the pull of the tides. It invites you to become one with the sea itself – to remember life’s humble beginnings on our water-based planet and ponder a future in which we return to its depths. Equally as evocative is Nigel Westlake’s Spirit of the Wild, brought to life by Australian oboe royalty Diana Doherty. Her vivid performance will transport you to Tasmania’s rugged South West wilderness where nature reigns supreme. This existential program exudes chaos of epic proportions with stirring music from Haydn’s The Creation.
