Piano Concerto No. 21 ‘Elvira Madigan’
Symphony No. 4
Humans have long been fascinated by the formation of our universe. Whether approached through the lens of physics or spirituality, the cosmos has captivated generations.
For many, the night sky produces a humble appreciation of one’s smallness in an impossibly big universe. Mahler’s Fourth Symphony explores this sense of reverence, as through the eyes of a child.
A musical take on the Big Bang, Benjamin de Murashkin’s LOGOS explores cosmic formation and destruction, the exponential expansion and dramatic contraction of a universe.
While nothing could fully capture the sublimity of the universe, Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 21 is a close contender and a powerful expression of the human experience.
