Composer Portraits

Liza Lim

Thursday, September 29, 2022, 8PM
Miller Theatre at Columbia University


A new, co-commissioned work—scheduled to be heard in concert halls on three continents this year—opens Miller’s season. Liza Lim is “one of Australia’s most important cultural exports” (Limelight Magazine), whose music encompasses ideas of beauty, ecological connection, and ritual transformation. The talented and dauntless JACK Quartet performs the U.S. premiere of String Creatures, alongside a piece for solo cello, prepared with a violin and a length of thread.
