Praised for producing “compassionate and masterly work” (The New York Times), artist, critic, and photographer Teju Cole’s curated concert features readings from his story “Radia,” with works that he chose to pair with his writing. In his curatorial note, Cole describes “Radia” as “a story about travel and discovery, a story of affliction and affiliation, set in a melancholy time. But within it is the germ of an as yet unseen future. Music, which is such a great part of our survival, is also what will survive us. This program, at the core of which lie several pieces for string quartet, evokes these interlocking themes of sadness and hope.” Readings by Cole will be accompanied by works spanning nearly a millennia, including pieces by Hildegard von Bingen and Caroline Shaw.


Broadcast on Wednesday, March 3, 2021 at 6:30 PM EST from The DiMenna Center for Classical Music.
