“Jóhannsson’s music gives the impression of having arrived in a time capsule from a distant planet that is a mirror image of our own.”—Gramophone
Clarice Jensen, artistic director and cello
Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson was most widely known for his award-winning film scores for The Theory of Everything, Arrival, and Sicario but was also equally adept in the concert music world. New York’s ACME toured with Jóhannsson from 2009 until his death in 2018 and can be heard on his acclaimed album Orphée. This performance will enthrall fans of both traditional and contemporary music and provides a unique opportunity to experience the composer’s chamber music in a concert setting featuring string quintet, piano, electronics, and percussion.
