The Singers interview composer Timothy C. Takach: Helios

The Singers Artistic Director Matthew Culloton interviews composer Tim Takach about Helios, a multi-movement choral work. Helios is a musical exploration of our solar system. The libretto contains poetry commissioned for this piece alongside translations of ancient writing and previously published poetry. Each movement’s text is inspired by the planet for which it is named, and Helios itself has an overarching theme of control.
