Falling Out of Time

Boston Symphony Orchestra

This special concert presents Argentina-born American composer Osvaldo Golijov’s Falling Out of Time, composed for a multicultural, multistylistic instrumental ensemble. Drawing powerfully on popular and folk music styles, based on David Grossman’s experimental novel about parents’ grief at the loss of a child, Golijov’s urgently impactful piece is here presented in a semi-staged performance.

Semi-staged production, presented in association with Celebrity Series of Boston.
