Countdown has started for the premiere of Apollo X at 8 pm on Friday, February 5 with the stellar Eric Paetkau and group of twenty seven chamber orchestra performing in the espresso lounge of the Centre for Social Innovation, 720 Bathurst Street. Tix here
Composer Paul Frehner will be at the concert to talk about the amazingly fun and wickedly difficult new concerto influenced by the Police, space funk & Berio... he channelled the solos of drummer Steward Copeland in the third movement but I think there is more that he might reveal.
This concerto will be on the Canadian Concerto Project Volume II and the CD cover will be the spray of intergalactic stars seen on the poster. If you don’t yet have your copy of Juno-nominated CCP Volume I, buy here.
And just got news that it will be a delightful end of the summer when I join composer & conductor Dinuk Wijeratne with the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra for concerts of concerti, new music and chamber music. Exact dates coming soon.
Adding stuff to my YouTube channel... this week the world premiere of the Oddbird Concerto, written for me by Mathieu Lussier. Along with premiering Apollo X by Paul Frehner in February 2016 with the group of 27, I am booked to give premieres across Canada in the next three years, all part of the on-going Canadian Concerto Project. And SUNY Fredonia has launched a grant application that includes commissioning Michael Colgrass to write a new concerto for me with wind ensemble and I really hope that happens!
First review for the Canadian Concerto Project, Volume One... thanks to the American Record Guide for noticing both our music, our composers and our hair!
