Multi-Grammy nominees, the Spektral Quartet actively pursues a vivid conversation between exhilarating works of the traditional repertoire and those written this decade, this year, or this week. Since its inception in 2010, Spektral is known for creating seamless connections across centuries, drawing in the listener with charismatic deliveries, interactive concert formats, an up-close atmosphere, and bold, inquisitive programming.

In the Fall of 2019, Spektral Quartet and the Adler Planetarium brought light and darkness – and the mysterious space in between – into orbit through Enigma, a new multimedia work by composer Anna Thorvaldsdottir and video artist Sigurdur Gudjónsson. Inspired by the 2017 solar eclipse and created for an immersive, full-dome theater experience, Thorvaldsdottir’s enchanting and beautifully disorienting sounds take on an even more vivid hue through Gudjonsson’s evocative imagery, promising an absolutely unforgettable live experience. Join us at the Bell Museum’s Planetarium for the rare opportunity to see this unique piece performed live.

Co-presented with The Walker Art Center and the Bell Museum
