Enjoy musical evocations of religious traditions from around the world, where we encounter music’s remarkable ability to calm the mind and uplift the soul, eliciting both serenity and joy. A raucous evocation of the festival atmosphere in Temples in Taiwan by Lu Yun contrasts with Maurice Ravel’s “Kaddisch,” a melismatic, soaring prayer. The Bloch Piano Quintet is an epic study of such juxtapositions, seamlessly moving from agitation to meditation to rapture.

Golijov: Tenaebrae
Lu Yun: Temples in Taiwan
Maurice Ravel: "Kaddisch" from Deux mélodies hébraïques
Bloch Piano Quintet No. 1, B. 43
