Osvaldo Golijov: Falling Out of Time


Falling Out of Time is a theatrical concert for voice and instruments, created by one of the world’s leading composers and performed by thirteen musicians from all over the world. It began ten years ago as a prose-poem written by the Booker Prize-winning author David Grossman of Jerusalem, following the death of his son. In 2019 it became a song cycle by composer Osvaldo Golijov, winner of Guggenheim and MacArthur Foundation fellowships.

In 2016, while reading the novel Falling Out of Time on a park bench in Tel Aviv, Osvaldo Golijov realized that for him, the spaces between its lines were music. That white space became his first composition in over a decade: a song cycle for ten instrumentalists and three voices in English and Hebrew.  The libretto is adapted by Mr. Golijov from Mr. Grossman’s novel, as translated by Jessica Cohen
