The Performance

ISO’s former Resident Conductor Jacob Joyce leads dramatic works from the World War eras and welcomes back soprano Julia Bullock after her ISO debut in February 2020. Bullock’s resonant voice provides the perfect channel to explore Barber’s dreamy, nostalgic scene in Knoxville: Summer of 1915. Also featured is Britten’s celebration of the coastal seascapes of England and Nielsen’s raging Fourth Symphony, reminding listeners in his words that “music is life, and like it inextinguishable.”
