The Arca Futuris will feature a recording of the work Itaipú by Philipp Glass (US). Glass wrote the four-movement symphonic work with mixed choir in 1989 after visiting the
Itaipú dam in Brazil and Paraguay. It is part 3 of a trilogy of works on nature and modern technology as a “portrait of nature” and follows The Light and The Canyon. Glass
uses a creation myth in his text about a flood caused by the misbehavior of a god, but overcome by singing, dancing and praying.
