Osvaldo Golijov's gripping song cycle, Falling Out of Time, explores the vast emotional journey of a mother and father grieving the loss of their son. Based on David Grossman’s book of the same name, this piece “glides frictionlessly across classical, folk, pop, and jazz idioms” as a “kind of voyage of the soul through jagged sweeps of grief and defiance, memory and yearning." (The Boston Globe) Performed by several musicians from the Silkroad Ensemble, this evocative Philadelphia premiere by a Penn alum weaves a tapestry of sound with voices, Persian kamancheh, Chinese pipa and sheng, trumpet, guitar, electronics, string quintet and percussion.

Sung in English and Hebrew with supertitles.
