“Take an evocative journey into earth’s diverse aquatic habitats where life thrives in the most extraordinary conditions. This unprecedented performance event features internationally renowned contemporary ensemble, cordis, performing a brilliantly orchestrated water-based score by acclaimed composer Richard Grimes. The music unfolds amidst spectacular aquatic imagery both on-stage and screen. Condition blue represents the first in a multi-phase recording and touring project in which cordis will explore the creative sonic and visual possibilities water, fire, and earth in an effort to raise awareness of our planet and its precious resources.”

“With their debut album Souvenirs, an all-Tchaikovsky release that was recently named Recording of the Month by BBC Music Magazine, Canada’s Rolston String Quartet continues to receive acclaim and recognition for their musical excellence. The quartet was awarded First Prize at the 12th Banff International String Quartet Competition, and was the 2018 recipient of the Cleveland Quartet Award from Chamber Music America—the first international ensemble chosen for that prestigious honor.”
