Briefly Gorgeous

In a season about friendship, QUO considers our relationship with Earth. Beethoven’s classic Pastoral Symphony and Aaron Copland’s An Outdoor Overture form a poignant pairing that invite us to reflect on what we have already lost of the natural world and what is at stake in what remains. “Spellbindingly virtuosic” (London Telegraph), GRAMMY Award-winning cellist Andrew Yee performs music by her Pulitzer Prize-winning collaborator Caroline Shaw in a new arrangement for cello and orchestra. Plus, the East Coast premiere of Yee’s recent work inspired by Ocean Vuong’s heartbreakingly beautiful debut novel, On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous.
