Kevin PUTS The Brightness of Light, for soprano, baritone, and orchestra

Painter Georgia O’Keeffe and her husband Alfred Stieglitz tell their love story in Kevin Puts’ poignantly romantic The Brightness of Light, a BSO commission composed for Renée Fleming. Wendall Harrington designed the accompanying lush projections based on images from O’Keeffe’s life and work. The program opens with two high-spirited Mozart works dating from his early Vienna years, when he was creating a new life as an independent composer.
