Month of Moderns III, Sunday, June 26, brings us two major Latvian composers: ?riks Ešenvalds, with his first American world premiere - for Seneca Sounds - and Maija Einfelde, whose At the edge of the Earth (Pie zemes t?l?s) (1996) reaches back farther into ancient drama with texts from Prometheus Bound (attributed to Aeschylus, c.500 BCE).  Gabriel Jackson: Lux mortuorum: Crystal points tug on million year filaments (1995) is a small masterwork from his ongoing collaboration with poet Richard George Elliot in which they grapple with bereavement.  It finalizes our thorough introduction and investigation of Jackson's work throughout the Month of Moderns 2011. Completing this evening of thoughts and thoughtfulness is English composer Tarik O'Regan's I saw him standing (2003), making the connection between Seneca and Christ, featuring resident organist Scott Dettra.
