This engrossing program encompasses varied works exploring religion and spirituality through the lens of female composers: Dame Ethel Smyth’s The Wreckers, staged at Bard in 2015, animates a moral drama about social justice and personal courage, while Lili Boulanger’s Psalm 130 “Du fond de l’abîme” (1917) offers a deeply personal requiem dedicated to her father. Lera Auerbach’s Violin Concerto No. 3, “De Profundis” (2015) with Vadim Repin rounds out the program. This programming is presented through UPSTREAMING, The Fisher Center’s Virtual Stage.
