Paradoxically perhaps, a psychologically expressive and structurally articulate silence is one of the most revolutionary aspects of Debussys music for Pellas et Mlisande, as the composer noted in a letter to his colleague Ernest Chausson: "Quite spontaneously Ive made use of means of expression that seems to me quite special, which is silence Dont laugh! It acts as an agent of expression and perhaps is the only means of giving full value to the emotion of a phrase." Come for: Debussys highly influential and mysterious opera of tragically entangled love is revisited by the creative team behind Salonens resoundingly successful London production, which "gave Esa-Pekka Salonen the opportunity to sculpt a performance of great transparency and lightness."

GRAMMY-winning soul singer/songwriter Judith Hill has shared her musical gifts in a variety of ways. The Los Angeles native has been a background singer for such legends as Stevie Wonder, Ringo Starr, and the late Michael Jackson, serving as the latter's duet partner on the classic ballad, "I Just Can't Stop Loving You," which later became a highlight of Jackson's posthumously released film This Is It. She also appeared in the Oscar-winning documentary 20 Feet From Stardom, which earned her a GRAMMY for Best Music Film. Hill subsequently appeared on The Voice, where she began to cement her identity as a solo artist with a series of knockout performances that showcased her ability to put her own unique spin on familiar songs. After seeing an interview with Hill, during which the singer expressed her desire to collaborate with Prince, the GRAMMY-winning artist called Hill personally and said he'd love to work with her. Prince played on and co-produced (with Hill) Judith's debut solo album, Back in Time, which showcases Hill's soulful, powerhouse voice and considerable songwriting prowess, with smart, deeply felt songs about racial injustice and overcoming struggle, nestled comfortably alongside supremely funky party jams that Hill says are a celebration of music, community, and family. Following her captivating performance at the "Earth in Concert: Protecting the Planet Through Music" benefit in November 2015, the GRAMMY Museum is excited to welcome back Judith Hill to the Clive Davis Theater for a special night of music and conversation.
