Ishii demands physical power, delicate precision, emotional strength and willpower from our guest taiko drummers to make Mono-Prism the explosive conclusion of our concert. Goddard’s musical mastery extends to his performance as a pianist in what is, for the composer, a project of passion that Esprit is thrilled to foster. Astapov brings his Russian heritage to the fore in setting a text by one of today’s most important under-forty Russian poets. Croall’s presence as a performer brings a powerful Anishinaabekwe plea for all humans to take care of our precious environment.

Barbara Croall (Canada) —  Mijidwewinan (Messages) (2008) for Anishinaabekwe soloist and orchestra
Christopher Goddard (Canada) —  Piano Concerto (2020)** concerto for piano and orchestra
