Colin Stetson: Honoring the Integrity of a Somber Symphony

We are thrilled to share the first installment of a five-part video series recorded during the 2017 festival, highlighting artists whose presentations paid homage to legendary performers of the past. Click here to watch saxophone extraordinaire Colin Stetson explain his creative process when re-imagining Henryk Górecki’s Symphony No. 3, the Symphony of Sorrowful Songs. The multi-reedist’s performance with Arcade Fire members Sarah Neufeld and Jeremy Gara alongside his sister Megan Stetson’s powerful vocals was truly a sight to behold. Stay tuned for the second installment of the series, which will be released next week.
