The temple of nature in which Schubert and his fellow Romantics worshipped is revisited by contemporary composers in this fascinating program. Audience members are invited to listen to the earth through the hushed reverence of Pauline Oliveros’s ritualistic Earth Ears, Anna Thorvaldsdottir’s Aequilibria, and the immersive sound world of Liza Lim’s How Forests Think.
