Estonian-American composer Jonas Tarm makes his Boston Musica Viva debut with a new BMV-commissioned work. Plus, the Northeast premiere of a trio by Brian Nabors, Joseph Schwantner’s Sleep Now (2018, BMV commission) and Fabio Vacchi’s stunning and emotional Canti di Benjaminovo (2003, BMV commission) with mezzo-soprano Krista River.

Krista River has “a shimmering voice...with the virtuosity of a violinist and the expressivity
of an actress.”
The New York Times

“If there’s any more gorgeous contemporary music than Joseph Schwantner’s I’ve yet to hear it … for sheer beauty of sound it’s unsurpassed.”
—Mark Lehman, American Record Guide
