World Premiere of Creation/Creator for soloists, chorus, and orchestra
Atlanta Symphony Orchestra/Robert Spano, conductor; James Alexander, stage director.
Christopher Theofanidis’s original composition for soloists, chorus, and orchestra—Creation/Creator— is an ambitious undertaking, and the culmination of a unique partnership between the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Emory University, and the Georgia Humanities Council. Interweaving texts and ideas from philosophy, science, religion, poetry, and literature, his Creation/Creator will give, as Theofanidis describes, a “profoundly deeper understanding of the relationship between these two subjects and to remove a limiting sense of a passive relationship between ‘God’ and humanity.”
