"MUSIC FOR THE EYE"

Boston-based orchestra Phoenix returns to the Gardner to perform a suite of music inspired by images

"Music for the Eye" moves from Wagner’s piece—written as a musical valentine to his wife and son, and meant to conjure “birdsong and orange sunrise," according to his inscription—to Charles Ives’s work inspired by the sculpture adorning Beacon Street, “Memorial to Robert Gould Shaw and the Massachusetts Fifty-Fourth Regiment.” Phoenix then brings to life Julia Wolfe’s sonic visualization of Johannes Vermeer’s A Girl Asleep, and closes with a world premiere inspired by John Singer Sargent’s El Jaleo from Boston composer Jonathan Bailey Holland.
