by Ethel Smyth
This engrossing program encompasses varied works exploring religion and spirituality through the lens of female composers: Dame Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers, staged at Bard in 2015, animates a moral drama about social justice and personal courage, while Lili Boulanger’s Psalm 130 “Du fond de l'abîme” (1917) offers a deeply personal requiem dedicated to her father. Lera Auerbach’s Violin Concerto No. 3, “De Profundis” (2015) with Vadim Repin rounds out the program.
