Anna CLYNE Color Field
WAGNER Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde
LISZT Prometheus
SCRIABIN Prometheus, Poem of Fire, for piano, color organ, chorus, and orchestra

A program of color: It opens with Anna Clyne’s Color Field, inspired in part by the vibrancy of a Mark Rothko painting. Followed by Richard Wagner’s ecstatic Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan and Isolde, and Franz Liszt’s Prometheus. The program closes with Alexander Scriabin’s Prometheus, Poem of Fire. When Alexander Scriabin’s wrote Prometheus, Poem of Fire, he conceived of a “light organ” that would project colors corresponding to his music. Prometheus premiered in 1911 with future BSO Music Director Serge Koussevitzky, whose 150th birthday year we celebrate in 2024.

The pre-rehearsal talk on April 4 will be with Robert Kirzinger and Anna Gawboy. The talk will begin at 9:30am, admission included with ticket.

Interested school groups can purchase tickets by contacting the Group Sales office at 617-638-9345 or
