Falling Out of Time is a new work from acclaimed composer Osvaldo Golijov for the Grammy-winning Silkroad Ensemble featuring vocalists Biella da Costa, Nora Fischer and Wu Tong. Rooted in David Grossman's novel of the same name, this infinitely nuanced story in voices narrates a profound journey of grief and solace, a journey "out of time" as parents grieve the death of a child, a quest to comprehend a loss with no name. This collaboration is born out of the conviction that, in the words of David Grossman "there is one place, or rather, one dimension, where we can feel, if only for an instant, both the absolute nihility of death and the full abundance of life. That dimension is art." It so happens that we all are, as a world, living in a moment in which the "natural" order of thing has been upended. More than ever, we are in need of stories that help us make sense of the broken pieces. Falling Out of Time is one such story.
