New music powerhouse Nadia Sirota returns to the Phillips for a collaboration with pianist James McVinnie and cellist Gabriel Cabezas. Their intelligent and exquisitely balanced program splices together music by some of today’s most dynamic composers with intimate solo works and arrangements of music by J.S. Bach. In a musical meditation that moves seamlessly between the centuries, music by Philip Glass, Nico Muhly, Caroline Shaw, Gabriella Smith, and Missy Mazzoli finds unexpected yet inspired communion with selections from Bach’s French Overture BWV 831, Cello Suites No. 5 and No. 6, and Contrapunctus 5 and 6 from his seminal, unfinished The Art of Fugue.
