With this piece, Reinaldo Moya – the inaugural recipient of the Ellis-Beauregard Foundation Composer Award – proposes a musical interpretation of Cruz-Diez’s pictorial language. Each of the piece's four movements is inspired by specific Cruz-Diez works and lines of research. Images of selected Carlos Cruz-Diez's works, including pieces from Crue-Diez Foundation’s collection, accompany the performance.


The event, organized in partnership with the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, took place live at the Collins Center for the Arts in Orono early in October, and its recording is available for subscribers as part of the Celebration: The BSO is Back event until October 26, 2021
