How do we live in unity with each other and with nature? Esmail’s This Love Between Us examines our shared humanity by juxtaposing texts of seven major religions of the Indian subcontinent, set with a unique combination of Hindustani and Western classical styles, bringing together chorus, Baroque orchestra, tabla, and sitar. Philip Glass’ propulsive Itaipú, based on the Creation myth of the Guarani peoples, paints an epic and unforgettable symphonic portrait of nature for chorus and orchestra.
