Love Sonnet: After the Season of Thunder & Hail description

A dusk concert to die for: the amazing Stephanie McCallum plays gloriously still, emotionally distilled, pieces by Sculthorpe, and all six of Satie’s famous, other-worldly, Gnossiennes. Between them, the much-loved masterwork that Messiaen wrote in a concentration camp will bear you aloft on angels’ wings.
