"Lux et Tenebris" A Conducting Recital by Brendan Barker
Sunday, February 1, 2015
DeBartolo Performing Arts Center
Reyes Organ and Choral Hall
This conducting recital led by Brendan Barker is an interdisciplinary performance built upon the narrative of a soul’s journey through the darkness (tenebris) of sin and chaos to the light (lux) of God’s mercy. The first three pieces (Haydn, Victoria & Berlioz), representing the Classical, Renaissance, and Romantic periods respectively will be performed as traditional concert repertoire. After a sitar interlude that establishes the raga or “scale” of the final piece, James Whitbourn’s Luminosity will be performed alongside a light installation designed by two collaborating M.F.A. students, Allison Evans and Sarah Edmands Martin.
