Syzygy is inspired by three artists and their work: painter Alma Thomas (1891-1978), painter Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), and designer, architect, and artist Maya Ying Lin (b. 1959). Each movement corresponds to a separate work of art by each of these artists: Thomas’ The Eclipse (1970), Kahlo’s Tree of Hope, Keep Firm (1946), and Lin’s Eclipsed Time (1994). Syzygy refers to the nearly straight-line configuration of three celestial bodies (such as the sun, moon, and earth during a solar or lunar eclipse) in a gravitational system. The theme of eclipse is present in all of these works as are contrasts of lightness and darkness.

The Courtney Bryan violin concerto Syzygy was commissioned by ARCO Collaborative and the Chicago Sinfonietta.
