Cappella: Eve and Adam – a new take on a very old story

Sunday, April 29, 2018
4::00-pm
Eliot Church of Newton, 474 Centre St., Newton Centre

Rising MIT composer Elena Ruehr’s “Eve,” composed in 2014, takes its familiar text from Genesis, but rather than the traditional retelling, poses an honest question: was gaining knowledge of good and evil such a terrible thing? Arvo Pärt’s “Adam’s Lament” is more traditional in interpretation, though in Part’s signature haunting musical style.
