Auditorium

In "The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind," Argentinean-born composer Osvaldo Golijov channels the spiritual life and writings of Isaac the Blind, the 12th-century Kabbalist rabbi of Provence. Scored for klezmer clarinet and string quartet, the work presents Golijov’s musical language that seamlessly blends various styles into a unique, evocative composition that is both contemporary and timeless.

The program also includes Johannes Brahms’s late masterpiece for the same instrumentation, the "Clarinet Quintet in b minor, Op. 115."
