In these concerts, we honor the loved ones we have lost. Tim Kiah’s new work remembers our dear friend Kurt Behnke, a longtime cellist with TCS. The series also features the premiere of Kamala Sankaram’s 91919 (10/30), a moving meditation on grief. Franz Schubert’s lyrical Unfinished Symphony, a work some scholars believe was inspired by personal trauma, demonstrates the power of music to provide solace. Concertos by Camille Saint-Saëns (10/29), Lars-Erik Larsson (10/29), and Arvo Pärt (10/30) round out the program.
