In 1990, Gérard Grisey composed “Le Noir D'Etoile,” an immersive composition for six percussionists in which they play along with amplified sonic emanations of pulsars. Conductor Douglas Perkins leads an ensemble in this special program, with a pre-concert lecture presentation on pulsars by astrophysicist and Curator Mordecai-Mark Mac Low.
