Adès's voyage for orchestra, with groups of brass players dispersed throughout alcoves and balconies of the hall, and Ives’s dream, with layered and colliding melodies emerging from and returning to Central Park’s nocturnal calm, use and alter the sense of space in the hall. Frehner and Harman create moods and atmospheres alluding to real and imagined scenarios.
