A Live Recording to Celebrate Art and Music
Tippet Rise OPUS 2016: Domo is a live recording born from the inaugural season at the Tippet Rise Art Center in Fishtail Montana. The center's intimate concert space is set on a 10,260-acre working sheep and cattle ranch dotted with majestic large-scale sculptures – all nestled against the backdrop of the Beartooth Mountains. Tippet Rise celebrates the concept that art, music, architecture, and nature are inextricably linked in the human experience, each amplifying the other.
In music by Scriabin, Chopin, Stravinsky, Rachmaninov, and Antón García Abril; and through extraordinary performances by pianists Yevgeny Sudbin, Svetlana Smolina, Christopher O’Riley, Anne-Marie McDermott, Stephen Hough, Jenny Chen and Julien Brocal; cellist Matt Haimovitz, trumpeter Elmer Churampi, and soprano Emily Helenbrook, Tippet Rise OPUS 2016 presents a cornucopia of virtuosity, fantasy, and transcendence. All the excitement of musicians and audience is felt in the room, and sometimes a violent rainstorm makes its presence known as well.
