Syzygy Ensemble – Divine Inspiration

The Pleasure Principle.

A fearless pioneer in chamber music, Syzygy Ensemble combines virtuosic talent with a bold commitment to today’s music. Lauded for their breathtaking precision and innovative repertoires, the ensemble seeks to spark visceral connections between 21st-century artists and audiences.

About the concert

Don’t we all just want to be happy? Syzygy’s 2023 series explores the many paths that lead to pleasure and purpose. Whether we are seeking serotonin bursts from secular thrills or pursuing an otherworldly divine transcendence, happiness means different things to all of us depending on our heritage, our goals, and our need to conform or disrupt.

Divine Inspiration ruminates on the significance of being insignificant. To live with wonder and awe is to know contentment of an entirely different kind. Syzygy explores ancient castles, the inexorability of the seasons, and the rituals of the Eastern Orthodox Church in a concert that celebrates their search for meaning in a large, chaotic universe.
