ANNOUNCING A WORLD PREMIERE

Silkroad Ensemble
Falling Out of Time: a song cycle by Osvaldo Golijov

Three years ago, Osvaldo Golijov sat down on a park bench to read David Grossman's Falling Out of Time. Part play, part poem, part fable, the book narrates a journey "out of time" as parents grieve the death of their child, a quest to comprehend a loss with no name.

Osvaldo's exquisite and nuanced interpretation of the story portrays a musical, mythical walk that traverses vast and varied emotional landscapes towards a place where breathing is again possible. Drawing on Grossman's powerful text, Osvaldo has conceived of this song cycle for the Silkroad Ensemble. The piece is scored for three voices, electronics, string quartet, kemancheh, pipa, sheng, and trumpet.

Workshops for Falling Out of Time began in Fall 2017 as part of Silkroad's multi-year residency at the College of the Holy Cross. The piece will have its world premiere at Brooks Concert Hall at the College on October 31, 2019.
