Our Season Finale opens with one of Martin’s favorites: a Romantic tone poem about a mountain range in his native Slovakia. The sonic spectacle of The Planets turns into an immersive experience of cosmic proportions with added choreographed visuals of the solar system by Seattle-based visual artist Adrian Wyard.
The Tatras Mountains have inspired many an artist, not just in music, but poetry, mythology, and literature, such as this by Kazimierz Przerwa-Tetmajer:
There is such peace there… Onto the slopes
Light pours through the translucent fog
Onto the somnolescent greenery of the mountains.
Burbling far away through the stones,
A stream sparkles in the sun and becomes
A silver-rainbow line.
