Canadian-American composer Karim Al-Zand has written a fantastical piece based on a set of drawings by J.J Grandville, a 19th century French caricaturist and cartoonist.

It's called "Visions from Another World," and each movement is based on a different Grandville drawing. Our Sept. 10 show features a performance of Al-Zand's Granville-inspired composition.
