Spektral Quartet: Enigma: A 360° Experience

Enigma sits on the border between concert music and installation art; it marshals sounds in ways that have little to do with the conventional pathways of Western classical music.” —Washington Post

An enveloping sonic and visual journey created by acclaimed Icelandic composer Anna Thorvaldsdottír and video artist Sigurdur Gudjónsson, Enigma takes place in the immersive night-sky environment of the Bell Museum’s planetarium. The mesmerizing ambient score conjures ancient imaginary landscapes, while mysterious images evoke otherworldly associations. Performed by Chicago’s Spektral Quartet, the piece teleports audiences to places sublime and unknown through a 360-degree constellation of sensory experiences. The program also includes Eliza Brown’s String Quartet #1; Tomás Luis de Victoria’s O Magnum Mysterium; and Claude Debussy’s String Quartet in G minor, Op. 10, No. III, Andantino, doucement expressif.

This program is now sold out.

Copresented by Schubert Club Mix and the Bell Museum.

Sensory note: This performance is an immersive experience in a planetarium.
