Composer Gerald Cohen, known for his moving and vibrant chamber music, opera, choral and liturgical music, presents Voyagers, to be performed with astronomical projections at Hayden Planetarium at the American Museum of Natural History.
The composition is a tribute to the two Voyager spacecraft on the 40th anniversary of their launch, and of the music sent to accompany them on their journey out of the solar system. The piece, a linking of music, science and visual art, was commissioned by and written for the Cassatt Quartet and clarinetist Vasko Dukovski. Accompanying astronomical visualizations will be created by Carter Emmart, director of Astrovisualization at the American Museum of Natural History.
