Composers Facing the Sublime

TRANSIT will be performing three special works on the GraceMusic series at Grace Church Nyack in November.

If you were at our DoubleBill in June, you heard Albertas Navickas‘ Midsummer Music for clarinet, violin, and piano. The sonic world Navickas creates in this piece is a beautiful and meditative one, and we look forward to playing it in a resonant space.

David Biedenbender‘s Red Vesper was inspired by the setting sun on the red rock formations of Capitol Reef National Park. Red Vesper is for clarinet, violin, cello, and piano, and we feel lucky to have found such a perfect fit for this program.

Also on the program is Olivier Messiaen’s Quartet for the End of Time. Although we rarely perform works written before this millennium, this is something we have always wanted to perform together. Undoubtedly one of the most iconic works from World War II, this piece is transformative and awe-inspiring.

Joining us will be special guest violinist Pauline Kim Harris.
