“Someone sent Alsop the score for Lindsay’s Darkness Made Visible, and she was so taken with its drama that she placed its world premiere on opening night. ‘I was interested in the music, and said, “Oh great. Let’s give that a try.” It has an explosive opening that is not derivative. It also pays tribute to older romantic styles — it’s got an actual theme — so it’s pretty traditional in that respect. Since it’s only about nine minutes, I thought it would be a good introduction.’”
