Christopher Goddard’s beguiling new work Les tringles des sistres tintaient (world premiere) re-imagines the spellbinding gypsy song that opens act two of Bizet’s Carmen with its fluidity, exoticism, and perpetual forward energy. Virtuosic saxophonist Wallace Halladay reveals the extent of Japanese composer Hosokawa’s exquisite creativity in Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra (Canadian premiere). The program also features Alison Yun-Fei Jiang’s River Memory and Claude Vivier’s Orion, perhaps the most vivid expression of the composer’s musical state of eternal homecoming.

Program: 
Toshio Hosokawa: Concerto for Saxophone and Orchestra (Canadian Premiere)
Alison Yun-Fei Jiang: River Memory
Claude Vivier: Orion 
Christopher Goddard: Les tringles des sistres tintaient (World Premiere)
