Radius Ensemble
On WCRB In Concert with Radius Ensemble, works by Nino Rota, Valerie Coleman, Tōru Takemitsu, and Charles Ives illuminate concepts of borders, as well as the rewards of crossing them.
Amanda Forsythe and Cecilia Duarte both smile widely. They both have long dark brown hair and warm brown eyes. Dorothee Mields smizes at the camera with her green eyes. She has long hair like the other two sopranos, but it's a light strawberry blonde. On the bottom half on the frame, nine members of the Tiburtina Ensemble stand in a line with their hands on each others shoulders. They each look unique, but they all smile at the camera.

A collage of John Storgårds and Pekka Kuusisto. Storgårds (left) stands in a teal room and leans against a wall. He wears a black suit and black shirt. He has brown hair that fades to gray and gray stubble on his face. He looks at the camera with his dark brown eyes and smiles softly. Kuusisto (right) stands in a dark pink room holding his violin. He wears an oversized black t-shirt and round, clear glasses. He has short blond hair and stands with his eyes closed, listening to whatever he's plucking on his violin. The center of the collage blends the teal and dark pink in a way that mimics the northern lights.

 This is a photograph of a young violinist. She has long blonde hair. She is standing outdoors amid mountains. She is holding her violin as she looks into the expanse of nature.
Together with pianist Llewellyn Sanchez–Werner, Eldbjørg Hemsing takes the audience on an extraordinary sonic journey to her homeland while exploring themes of environmentalism, climate change, and our connection to nature.
