SMU’s SYZYGY is collaborating with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra and ensembleNEWSRQ to present PARISIAN REFRACTION, a micro-festival of recent masterworks for soloists and ensemble.

 Utilizing 40 excerpts of diary entries and writings from Franz Kafka, Kurtag’s Kafka Fragments is a deeply wrought and emotional hour-long journey for violinist and soprano. Drawing inspiration from Kurtag’s meetings in Paris with the art psychologist Marianne Stein, this work covers a vast array and scope of the human experience, at times haunting, tender and vivid. Noted for her “dazzling, virtuoso singing” (Boston Globe), Lucy Fitz Gibbon is a dynamic musician whose repertoire spans the Renaissance to the present and has been a recently featured performer at Marlboro and Tanglewood. Samantha Bennett, hailed by the Chicago Tribune as a violinist “requiring no caveats, full of subtlety and poise,” is both a member of the

Dallas Opera violin section and a leading interpreter of contemporary works, having worked extensively with today’s leading composers and as Co-Founder and Artistic Director of ensembleNEWSRQ.
