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 perform the U.S. premiere of String Creatures, alongside a piece for solo cello, prepared with a violin and a length of thread.
