Inbal Segev, world-renowned cellist noted by “The Washington Post” for her “thrillingly projected, vibrato-rich playing,” joins IPO for the Midwest premiere of Vijay Iyer’s “Human Archipelago” on Feb. 25. 

Iyer brings his work to IPO for only its third appearance worldwide, after debuting with the London Philharmonic and then the Oregon Symphony.

Human Archipelago addresses the entangled processes of climate change & migration & the societal imbalances that are both their cause and their result,” Iyer said. “The piece is intended to take the performers to a point of vulnerability & the brink of possibility that brings the music to life & expresses human inter-reliance.”

There will be a free pre-concert talk hosted by composer Iyer and Michael Lewanski, associate professor in the DePaul University School of Music.
