Catch a glimpse of the exquisite Northern Lights as this program brings you from the bitter heart of a Nordic winter to the warmth of a welcoming hearth. The few gentle snowflakes felt in Steve Reich’s “Duet” soon gain intensity and develop into a full-blown blizzard of sound.. But as cold as it may be, once you find your way inside, a raucous party awaits – with a pretty stellar live band, of course!
