On Sunday, August 23, Inon Barnatan joins conductor Alan Gilbert and and and ensemble of 43 musicians — the largest group ever gathered at the festival for a single work — for a performance of Messiaen’s ecstatic Des canyons aux étoiles (“From the Canyons to the Stars”). This epic, twelve-movement masterpiece, inspired by the natural beauty of Utah’s Bryce Canyon, draws on a characteristic mix of birdsong, modernist experimentalism, and religious mysticism.
