The program’s stylistic range includes 12th-century chants by Hildegard von Bingen alongside Haydn’s famous oratorio, Sibelius’s setting of the creation myth from the Finnish Kalevala epic, and an excerpt from Australian composer Brett Dean’s “evolution cantata” In This Brief Moment, which premiered in 2022.
