Inspiration Space

From Venice, Italy to the planets of our solar system and beyond; WorldBrass presents a program inspired by the spaces that surround us.

It was the architecture of St. Mark’s Basilica that inspired Giovanni Gabrieli to use space in a new way and which led him to a new antiphonal style of composition. The “Voyager Golden Record” represents humankind’s musical culture and was sent into space in the hopes of making contact with extra-terrestrial life. Håkan Berge’s “Response” offers an answer from the stars. Bart de Vrees “IKNWWHTYVDN” takes its inspiration from Bach’s “Musical Offering”, and plays with the concert space in a new way, expanding on Gabrieli’s original idea. Looking deep into our inner spaces and out into the universe has inspired many to ask the question, “Who is the architect of what we are and all that surrounds us?”. A medley of English hymns provides an opportunity to reflect on this question. With “The Planets”, Gustav Holst presented a musical mapping of our solar system at the beginning of the 20th century which has become a staple of the symphonic literature and serves well to close out our program, Inspiration Space.
