Music from an Imaginary Landscape

November 24, 2013 - Baltimore, Maryland

“Music from an Imaginary Landscape” features the premiere performance of two musical compositions commissioned by the Walters Museum of Art in response to a mysterious, ancient Egyptian papyrus known as the “Book of the Faiyum.” One piece, by New-York composer Daniel Thomas Davis, reimagines the "Book of the Faiyum" as a musical guidebook to the imaginary landscapes of the ancient papyrus. The other world-premiere composition, written for the occasion by Baltimore composer Judah Adashi, recasts the City of Baltimore itself as a magical and mysterious terrain.
