Video Flashback: De Profundis: Out of the Depths

Staying home and in need of some music? Watch our April 2019 concert De Profundis: Out of the Depths.

World-renowned violinist Vadim Repin joined TŌN for this musical exploration of Psalm 130, which reads “Out of the depths, Oh Lord, have I cried unto Thee.” Repin performed the U.S. premiere of Lera Auerbach’s Violin Concerto No. 3, De Profundis. Lili Boulanger’s rendering of the psalm, performed with soprano Elizabeth de Trejo, is dedicated to the memory of her father and was composed at the early age of 22, just one year before her death. Also on the program are an a cappella choral interpretation by Pulitzer Prize winner Virgil Thomson, and the U.S. premiere of Joachim Raff’s setting for soprano, eight-part choir, and orchestra, which he dedicated to his former colleague, Franz Liszt.
