Donald Nally and Alan Pierson, conductors.

The two ensembles collaborate in the second of a series of concerts commemorating the late composer Pelle Gudmundsen-Holmgreen. In his 2010 Song/Play/Company, simplicity emerges out of seeming chaos as the English Renaissance composer John Dowland’s “Flow, My Tears” slowly comes into focus. In the masterful Ad Cor (To the Heart)—Gudmundsen-Holmgreen’s last major work, written for conductor Donald Nally—individual movements address the wounded heart, the joyful heart, and the mocking heart before the three perspectives come together in the organic finale.
