Sunday, Jan. 11, 7 pm: The Sacred, Profane, and Spiritual: Composers across the centuries have explored timeless themes of spirituality, piety, and irreverence. Come be transported beyond the gardens to other realms; from Jewish mysticism in Osvaldo Golijov’s “The Dreams and Prayers of Isaac the Blind” and profound reverence in a Bach motet, to devils and witches in Liszt’s “Mephisto Waltz” and Berlioz’s “Symphony Fantastique."
