Before the performance, a powerful, absorbing re-creation of Friday Greeting erases the stimuli of the outside world. And onstage, a percussionist performs the allegorical Heaven’s Door, followed by Stockhausen’s mesmerizing and rarely heard Cosmic Pulses, his final electronic piece.

*Friday Greeting begins at 6:45 in the Alice Tully Hall lobby, and Friday Farewell will begin in the lobby immediately following Cosmic Pulses.
