The Dallas Symphony Orchestra announces featured artists and original commissions for the second annual Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival, the theme of which is Myth & Legend. The festival will debut installations and works by artists Mai-Thu Perret and Anton Ginzburg, as well as an opening performance piece by Daniel Arsham, Jonah Bokaer and Pharrell Williams.
Presented in collaboration with the Dallas Arts District and a number of prominent Dallas-based cultural institutions, including the Nasher Sculpture Center, Dallas Museum of Art and Dallas Contemporary, the three-week long festival will be anchored by a series of orchestral and chamber music performances by the DSO, led by legendary conductor Jaap van Zweden.
Karina Canellakis conducts a program of evocative and colorful orchestral gems to ignite the imagination and transport listeners to faraway lands.
New York-based artist Anton Ginzburg will present a new video “Turo” set to the live performances of Jean Sibelius’s symphonic poem Pohjola’s Daughter and Richard Wagner’s Waldweben (Forest Murmurs) from Siegfried.
