American Visions

  • Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum 25 Evans Way Boston, MA, 02115 United States (map)


Anchored by John Adams’ ecstatic, larger-than-life “Shaker Loops,” this program revels in visionary works by American composers - beginning with Jessie Montgomery’s bright “Starburst.” Julia Perry’s rarely-heard “Stabat Mater” wrenches the program into darkness with a bleak and bitter vision of Mary and her dying son. The Taylor-Perkinson Sinfonietta, also largely unknown, is a visceral work from a composer who embraced classical, jazz, and popular music.
