Cosic's '2nd Nature' SLSO Collaboration Previewed

Zlatko Cosic's pandemic-postponed collaboration with St. Louis composer Christopher Stark was broadcast by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra as part of its "SLSO at Home" series.

St. Louis Symphony Orchestra violinist Shawn Weil was scheduled to give the world premiere of the multimedia piece, "2nd Nature," by Stark at a March St. Louis Symphony: Live at the Pulitzer performance.

Though the performance had to be postponed, they look forward to when Weil can perform this immersive work in person. In this #SLSOatHome video, he gives a preview of the piece, which was inspired by a trip to Asia by the two musicians. Cosic, a St. Louis video artist, Webster alumnus and School of Communications adjunct faculty member, created the stunning visual aspect using images and videos from the trip.
