Music Director Jaap van Zweden and the Dallas Symphony welcome you to the 2017 Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival!
SOLUNA was launched in 2015 with the goals of uniting and collaborating with partners in the Dallas Arts District, and creating unique experiences among different disciplines and genres. Now in its third year, we have seen these goals become reality. SOLUNA has established a real presence in the Dallas cultural landscape and beyond, and it is continuing to generate excitement.
Jaap van Zweden Music Director
Anna-Sophia van Zweden
SOLUNA Festival Co-Founder & Advisor
Director of SOLUNA Projects
The Dallas Symphony Orchestra’s performances are at the heart of SOLUNA, and each year audiences hear new works or pieces not often performed. From the introspection and inquisitiveness of Bernstein’s Kaddish Symphony to Mahler’s youthful Das klagende Lied, Jaap van Zweden and the DSO have given memorable performances in the Meyerson. This year under the festival’s theme of “Dreams and Illusions,” Jaap and the DSO will present Elgar’s monumental The Dream of Gerontius, and will dig deep into the character and context of Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 5. Each year SOLUNA partners with thoughtprovoking contemporary visual artists and performers to present cutting-edge collaborations and exhibitions that promise fresh new perspectives. SOLUNA 2017 will again present immersive contemporary art projects that bring the best to Dallas. We want to recognize and thank Anna-Sophia van Zweden for laying the foundation for those rich partnerships. Most of all, SOLUNA is a festival of and for Dallas. We are a product of the city’s diversity, its spirit of collaboration and its bold artistic expression. SOLUNA offers an unparalleled opportunity to explore the arts in Dallas, and as we continue to investigate the intersections between music, dance, opera, drama, education, science and contemporary art, we invite you to explore everything SOLUNA has to offer. From all of us at the Dallas Symphony, enjoy SOLUNA!

S OLU NA IS… The third annual Nancy A. Nasher and David J. Haemisegger Family SOLUNA International Music & Arts Festival presents a curated three-week experience, staging a series of performances and mixed-media installations by some of the most exciting contemporary artists working today, alongside concerts by the Dallas Symphony Orchestra led by Music Director Jaap van Zweden. Programming for the 2017 festival is centered on the theme of “Dreams & Illusions.” Whether daydreams, nightmares, wistful thinking or shimmering mirages, artists have “SOLUNA Bridges The Gap been inspired by the concept of dreaming for Between Classical Music centuries. From Elgar’s And Contemporary Culture” monumental The Dream of Gerontius to Jessica FORBES Mitrani’s Traveling Lady to aspirational dreams of the youth of Dallas, SOLUNA will explore the representation of dreams and consciousness through music and visual arts. SOLUNA brings together a diverse audience of cultural explorers — many new to a classical music concert or unfamiliar with art galleries or museums — who share a sense of exploration and discovery with international artists and musicians curious about new processes of creation and new modes of expression. SOLUNA shines the light of creativity onto fresh eyes and ears and inspires travel across never-before-seen landscapes. We invite you to discover everything the Dallas arts community has to offer and connect the arts to our community and to the world.

A rarely heard masterpiece comes to SOLUNA
When he had finished composing his oratorio
“It is Elgar’s most impressive piece and unbelievably beautiful,” said Music Director Jaap van Zweden. “It’s a masterpiece – like the Requiems of Brahms and Verdi – but a lot of people have never heard it.” The text is based on a poem by John Henry Newman, an English Catholic cardinal and theologian in the 19th century. The narrative follows a dying Gerontius, from the Greek word for “old man," as he confronts angels and demons on his quest to understand death and the meaning of life. “This large-scale work is a masterful rhapsodic meditation on life, death and transcendence from one of our most under-appreciated composers,” said Chorus Director Joshua Habermann. “It is a rare treat to perform – or to hear – this marvelous piece.” The Dream of Gerontius is a cornerstone of this year’s SOLUNA Festival focusing on the theme of “Dreams and Illusions.” “I was very happy that the theme of the Festival gave me the opportunity to present this piece,” said van Zweden. “That’s what SOLUNA is for—to bring different music to people.” Special thanks to Seattle Symphony and Paul Schiaro.
The Dream of Gerontius, Edward Elgar inscribed these lines by the English writer John Ruskin on the final page of his manuscript. Nothing could indicate more clearly the composer’s feeling for this work, its personal importance to him and his faith in its artistic merit — faith that was vindicated despite a disastrous first performance. Within just a few years Gerontius became widely recognized as the first great English oratorio since those of Handel, written 150 years and more earlier, and its beauty and depth of expression remain widely admired.
“This is the best of me; for the rest, I ate and drank, and slept, loved and hated, like another. My life was as the vapour, and is not; but this I saw, and knew; this, if anything of mine, is worth your memory.”

BY MURIEL QUANCARD | Curator-At-Large During SOLUNA 2017, visual art, sound and performance provide visitors with space and time for contemplation and reverie, inviting them to participate in aural and cinematic environments. The viewer is center stage and often plays a role in activating the work. Visual perspective and musical narrative are deconstructed and replaced with new, sometimes fragmentary, often visionary models. At the Crow Collection of Asian Art, composer Henri Scars Struck presents We Know You've Got Soul, an immersive auditory experience that takes the visitor on a journey from earth to eternal rest. Inspired by myths of the afterlife, music and sound lead participants through the museum, along with historical artifacts and the landscapes of artists Arnold Chang and Michael Cherney. Agence 5970 has long explored the complex relationship between consciousness, the body and dreaming. Focusing on the architecture of dreams rather than their symbolic content,
DreamSpace engages the audience in a vibrant experience that combines the acts of listening, reading and seeing within a technologically mediated sensorium. DreamSpace explores the phenomenon of synesthesia — the combination and interplay of images, sounds, colors and other effects within an artwork — in an effort to intensify the viewer’s perception. Ultra-Seeing: The Mandala Pattern, hosted at the Nasher Sculpture Center and curated together with Light Cone and the University of Texas at Dallas’s School of Arts, Technology and Communication, delivers three disparate cinematic experiences: a screening of abstract films by Jordan Belson, Bruce Conner, Adam R. Levine, Joost Rekveld, and James Whitney; a live performance by Martin Back; and an immersive installation by French collective Nominoë. Belson’s kaleidoscopic images are set to music by visionary sound artist Henri Jacobs, while the poetic footage of Bruce Conner is augmented by the hypnotic pulse of Terry Riley’s In C.
MICHAEL CHERNEY AND ARNOLD CHANG — AFTER WANG MENG
At the Wyly Theatre, Jessica Mitrani exposes the symbiotic relationship between theater and cinema in her multimedia performance Traveling Lady. This work is conceived as a film with live elements with acclaimed Spanish actress Rossy de Palma physically emerging from the picture and performing on a cinematic stage. At once corporeal and cosmic, this forceful combination of film and theater plays on scale and the bodily presence of the actress. In Mexican artist Pia Camil’s communitybased performance at Dallas Contemporary, the audience is invited to interact with a shared structure made of sewn-together second-hand clothes. This group effort hints at the construction of social ties through the process of participation. An antidote to the individuality of capitalism, Camil’s work appeals to our empathy via collective dream. The scope of the projects presented throughout SOLUNA 2017 reflect the plurality of the contemporary artistic experience. Throughout SOLUNA, your senses are stimulated by a collection of images as the artists invite you to reflect on the nature and value of these images as mental constructs. As Hans Belting writes in Anthropology of Images, “nowhere are we more justified in speaking of ourselves as ‘the locus of images’ than when it comes to dreams.”
