This staged event features selections ranging from Gregorian chant and 17th-century battle music by Heinrich Ignaz Franz Biber to powerful recent works, including the deeply disturbing Dies Irae by the Russian composer Galina Ustvolskaya. The West Coast premiere of a major commentary on the state of our planet.
