Luciano Berio’s Folksongs from 1964 is one of the magical works of chamber music of the 20th century. Berio’s playful and captivating anthology of 11 songs explores the cultural roots of music from around the world including Kentucky, Armenia, Azerbaijan, France, Sicily and Berio’s own creations. Toronto’s Fides Krucker prepared Folksongs under the guidance of Berio. Her remarkable voice and electrifying presence are fully engaged by this extraordinary piece.
The program will also feature the premiere of a major new Chamber Symphony by Vancouver composer Dorothy Chang. This three-piece movement work is full of poetry and rhythmic vitality, inspired in turn by the shifting patterns of clouds, oceans and landscape of coastal Vancouver, the silent encircling of eagles overhead, and the urban energy and density of the upward climbing city.
The sumptuous ‘four-course’ program will include the timbral virtuosity and visceral power of French composer Gerard Grisey’s Partiels, and cellist Ariel Barnes’ performance of Ana Sokolovic’s spellbinding Vez.
