Description: Three years ago, Osvaldo Golijov sat down on a park bench in Tel Aviv to read David Grossman's "Falling Out of Time". Part play, part poem, part fable, the book narrates a journey "out of time" as parents grieve the death of their child, a quest to comprehend a loss with no name.

Osvaldo Golijov's exquisite and nuanced interpretation of the story portrays a musical, mythical walk that traverses vast and varied emotional landscapes to finally arrive at a place where breathing is again possible. Drawing on Grossman's powerful text, Osvaldo has conceived this song cycle for the Silkroad Ensemble, the collective whose delicacy of musical expression he describes as like "a harp of a thousand hairs."

Workshops for "Falling Out of Time" began in Fall 2017 as part of Silkroad's multi-year residency at the College of the Holy Cross. This performance marks the world premiere of "Falling Out of Time", which will be followed by a national tour.
