    Oregon Symphony – Be As Water

    Date April 15, 2022 7:30pm Pricing $29 – $55

    Inspiring * Exhilarating * Riveting

    In this wide-ranging meditation on the liquid we can’t live without, Handel’s irresistibly buoyant Water Music becomes a foil for five contemporary works that draw inspiration from water—three of them written by composers nominated for 2022 GRAMMY Awards—at a time when the planet is increasingly imperiled. Bookended by an electrifying percussion quartet by local favorite Andy Akiho and Nico Muhly’s 2007 masterpiece The Only Tune—a radical re-imagining of the timeless folk song “Two Sisters” featuring London-based avant-folk star Sam Amidon—this concert, performed by the Oregon Symphony, will offer listeners an opportunity to hear Handel’s classic through fresh ears, while experiencing cutting-edge new works from rising stars Timo Andres, Gabriella Smith, and inti figgis-vizueta.
