The concert will open with Rainbow Body by Yale faculty composer Christopher Theofanidis. Composed in 2000, the piece unifies the melody of a medieval hymn composed by Hildegard of Bingen with the Tibetan Buddhist idea of the “Rainbow body,” an enlightened being that physically dies and is absorbed back into the universe as light.
