Sir Michael Tippett’s A Child of Our Time is a work of surpassing depth and beauty. Written at the start of World War II, the work weaves American spirituals throughout a gripping musical tapestry, tracing an arc from oppression to a message of hope and reconciliation for humanity. Complementing this landmark choral work will be the scintillating Starburst, composed by rising star Jessie Montgomery, and Ennanga by William Grant Still, a showcase for solo harp, piano, and strings.
