It’s been more than 25 years since the end of the Soviet Union, the fall of the Berlin Wall, and the rebirth of cultural connections between eastern and western Europe. And still we are discovering voices that refused to be silenced during eras of repression. This one hour concert features music by Estonian composer Arvo Pärt. Russian Dmitri Shostakovich, and the US premiere of Iron Curtain by composer in residence Moritz Eggert.

Pärt   Summa, for vocal ensemble
Eggert   Iron Curtain, for percussion quartet (US Premiere)
