PROGRAM - "After Silence"
In the essay from which the title After Silence is taken, Aldous Huxley offers his thoughts on the essential force of music. The most profoundly significant constituents of our being, he says, include our responses to beauty, pleasure, pain, ecstasy, and death. These can best be “experienced, not expressed” through silence, and after silence, through music. The works in this 15th-anniversary program are exalted, vital, and freed from their original restraints to express the inexpressible.
