8:00pm Concert / 7:15pm Pre-Concert Chat
Koerner Hall,
TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning,
273 Bloor St. W.

PROGRAM

Toshio Hosokawa (Japan)
Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra (1999)*
Alison Yun-Fei Jiang (Canada)
TBA
Claude Vivier (Canada)
Orion (1979)
Christopher Goddard (Canada)
Les tringles des sistres tintaient (2019)**
*Canadian Premiere
** World Premiere commissioned by Esprit with generous support from The Koerner Foundation

Goddard’s beguiling new work re-imagines the spellbinding gypsy song that opens act two of Bizet’s Carmen with its fluidity, exoticism and perpetual forward energy. The astounding virtuosity of saxophonist Wallace Halladay reveals the full extent of visiting Japanese guest composer Hosokawa’s exquisite creativity. Orion, this concert’s touchstone, is perhaps the most vivid expression of Vivier’s musical state of “eternal homecoming”.

Part of The Royal Conservatory’s 21C Music Festival, as well as the University of Toronto New Music Festival.

 

Single Tickets on sale as of September 24, 2018.
