World-renowned composer Osvaldo Golijov, Loyola professor of music at the College of the Holy Cross, is working on a project for soprano Nora Fischer and Silkroad Ensemble, according to the New York Times.

The daughter of Hungarian conductor Ivan Fischer, Nora Fischer is renowned for creative interpretations of classical works. And if the name “Silkroad Ensemble” sounds familiar, it’s because the Grammy Award-winning group founded by cellist Yo-Yo Ma has recently embarked on a three-year residency on campus.

Other projects by Golijov include “Azul,” a cello concerto for Yo-Yo Ma and the Boston Symphony; the soundtrack for Francis Ford Coppola’s film “Youth Without Youth;” “Rose of the Winds,” commissioned by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra; and “Kuai Le (Joy),” premiered by Yo-Yo Ma and the Silk Road Ensemble at the opening of the 2007 Special Olympics in Shanghai.
