Description:

Alan Pierson and Ben Bolter, conductors 

Conductor Ben Bolter premiered Drew Baker’s Noxat Chicago’s 2016 Ear Taxi Festival. Taking its title from poet Anne Carson’s elegiac book, Nox uses spatial arrangement to connect seemingly opposing ideas and sounds, surrounding the audience with four groups of performers for an immersive sound experience. Hans Abrahamsen’s Schnee, completed in 2008, was inspired by the Hans Christian Andersen tale “The Snow Queen” and the canons of J. S. Bach. With its delicate textures and evocative instrumentation, Schnee evokes a wintry landscape covered in fresh snowfall.
