What if one of the most popular saints in medieval Christianity was none other than Buddha? Dialogos presents a musical journey inspired by the legend of Barlaam and Josaphat (a Christianized adaptation of the story of Buddha). Three musicians tell the story using musical repertoires from Medieval Greek, Latin, Russian, Croatian, French, and Italian manuscripts. The popularity and cosmopolitan nature of this legend, as well as its universal dimension, inspired the creation of this program.
