Alex Pauk – conductor

*Canadian Premiere

Mazzoli’s Sinfonia, cast “in the shape of a solar system”, weaves and coils itself in pulsing loops that twist around each other within a larger orbit while the Sinfonia of Keuris is simply a work of utmost charm and pleasurable musical invention.

Chin’s celestial “dance of the strings” extends to the full orchestra and offers musical reflections on natural phenomena and our physical relationship with the cosmos.
