The program, recorded in the newly renovated Wu Tsai Theater at David Geffen Hall, opens with the world premiere of Oyá by Marcos Balter, featuring Levy Lorenzo as the electronics soloist. Tania León’s Stride, the 2021 Pulitzer Prize-winning composition infused with her Caribbean heritage, was inspired by the life and work of Susan B. Anthony. Also on the program are John Adams’s evocative New-England-inspired triptych My Father Knew Charles Ives and Respighi’s Pines of Rome.
