MTT leads Viola Visions’ renowned guest artists in performances of chamber works that showcase the viola. Nadia Sirota performs Keep in Touch, a lamentation for solo viola and pre-recorded CD written for her by Nico Muhly, who will conduct. George Benjamin’s Viola, Viola is a mesmerizing dance and fierce dialogue between Tabea Zimmermann and Matthew Lipman. The explosive Chemins II by Luciano Berio is a reimagining of his famed Sequenzas with Jonathan Vinocour at the helm. Israeli composer Betty Olivero evokes the pain and grief of wartime using Middle Eastern melodies and dueling string ensembles in Neharót Neharót, written for and performed by Kim Kashkashian.
