YOTAM HABER break break break
LJ WHITE Fly into the light
YOTAM HABER From the book
CHRISTOPHER STARK 2nd Nature (World Premiere)

In 2019, St. Louis-based composer Christopher Stark and the SLSO’s violinist Shawn Weil traveled around Asia. They collected sounds and video that has been transformed by Stark and video artist Zlatko Cosic into 2nd Nature, a work for violin, electronics and video that receives its world premiere in this performance. This immersive work envelops the Pulitzer audience in an ambient and meditative natural world."

Three Missouri-based composers find their own responses to a sense of place. Yotam Haber’s string quartet From the Book is an emotional reflection on an ancient Jewish liturgical melody, while break break break is a frenzied evocation of South Africa's rap-rave scene. Violin sounds are slowly weaved into LJ White’s gentle tapestry, while Carolina Heredia challenges a solo cellist to confront the emotional struggles of Anoranzas (“yearning” or “homesickness”).
