Davóne Tines, baritone

The meditative and “compelling” music of Pakistani-American composer Qasim Naqvi casts an unforgettable sonic spell (Pitchfork); his innovative soundtracks have appeared on HBO, PBS, and at the Academy Awards. Violinist Jennifer Koh, a “prodigious builder of musical bridges” (L A Times), joins “charismatic” bass-baritone Davóne Tines (New York Times) and Naqvi himself for a journey across nearly 1,000 years of spiritually elevating music – by J. S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Isang Yun, and Naqvi, including a world premiere.



Works by J. S. Bach, Hildegard of Bingen, Isang Yun, Qasim Naqvi, and traditional African-American spirituals
