Salem, OR—The Wind in High Places

January 29 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

$5 – $28

John Luther Adams’ The Wind in High Places sets the stage for this program’s themes of natural wonder, searching, and exaltation. Composed in northern Alaska, the piece evokes a bare, vast, and rocky landscape using only open strings and natural harmonics. Benjamin Britten’s first quartet begins in these upper sororities, before plunging earthbound in this vivacious work filled with human drama. Beethoven’s Op. 132, written near the end of his life, concludes the program. Its slow movement, the “Holy Song of Thanksgiving,” represents Beethoven’s deep gratitude for recovery from a nearly fatal illness.
