Esprit Orchestra, conducted by Music Director Alex Pauk, will premiere James O’Callaghan’s Overbound
for virtuoso cello soloist Cameron Crozman, orchestra, and surround sound electronics. Koerner Hall will resound at its fullest in an immersive extended spatial experience ranging from the intimacy of the solo cello to the sound of a larger than life electronically augmented orchestra.
Providing an explosive, enthralling dimension to the concert, Esprit Orchestra has invited Japanese taiko drumming group Nagata Shachu for a performance of Japanese composer Maki Ishii’s Mono-Prism
. Blending Asian and Western musical traditions, Ishii’s work demands physical power, delicate precision, emotional strength, and willpower from Nagata Shachu in an experience counterbalancing the colours and forces of a large orchestra.
James O’Callaghan: Overbound
