Spokane Symphony @ Home: Overtones Episode 5 - Heaven & Earth
Episode 5 - Heaven & Earth
Heaven has been an obsession for humans for millennia. An Inland Northwest art historian will reflect on how and why heaven and earth have been depicted by visual artists. James Lowe will talk with a player about how it feels to play George Walker’s moving Lyric for Strings, dedicated to the memory of his beloved grandmother. A local tribal member will discuss the beliefs about heaven and earth that are deeply ingrained in the indigenous culture of our region before Mahler’s Symphony No. 4 (presented in a Covid-compliant instrumental reduction), a journey from earth to heaven through the perspective of a child.
Thank you to our Spring series season sponsors: Paul and Sue Kennedy and Joan Degerstrom
About "Overtones: Connecting Music, Art & Science"
The Spokane Symphony @ Home spring concerts are 90-minute episodes of music and more! Each of the five concerts has a theme that Music Director James Lowe will explore through music and other disciplines. Episodes will include short video segments of James Lowe chatting with orchestra musicians about their backgrounds and thoughts about classical music, plus conversations with some of the most engaging experts in the Inland Northwest on a variety of topics related to the themes.
Spokane Symphony Music Director James Lowe says “I have always been fascinated with how the same ideas find expression in different ways, but I never found a way to explore those overlapping ideas. After all, we tend to only see paintings in galleries, and hear symphonies in concert halls. That has now changed. The enforced isolation of the Covid era actually allows us to explore these ideas digitally, and that’s what our on demand concert series will do.”
