John Luther Adams / An Atlas of Deep Time (World Premiere)
The final concert of this Centennial Season opens with Richard Strauss’ epic tone poem “Thus Spake Zarathustra”, the opening bars of which are immortalized in Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey.” An Atlas of Deep Time is a World Premiere written especially for the occasion by Pulitzer and Grammy-award winning composer John Luther Adams. The concert culminates with a 100th birthday celebration for the SDSO!
