ARRAY ENSEMBLE CONCERT 2
(prerecorded webcast | runtime 60 minutes)
SUGGESTED $25 or PAY WHAT YOU WANT
ARTISTIC DIRECTOR: DAVID SCHOTZKO
Since its beginnings in 1972, the Array Ensemble has created and presented hundreds of new Canadian and international compositions to audiences in Toronto, across Canada, and beyond. A flexible ensemble featuring a core instrumentation of five of Toronto’s most dedicated new music performers, each Array Ensemble season balances world premieres with performances of seldom heard and classic works by established and new generation composers from a wide range of artistic and cultural perspectives.
Arraymusic’s annual Premieres concert returns after a COVID-enforced hiatus! This year’s event features an exciting set of World and Canadian premieres by acclaimed composers from Ontario and abroad.
Ontario composer Julia Mermelstein’s Capsule for bass clarinet and electronics explores the sonic intimacy of small spaces, while John Mark Sherlock (ON) transforms the hubcaps and brake drums from his trusty 1988 Chevrolet G10 van into a metal instrument constellation for his solo percussion work Ne jetez pas de corps étrangers dans les étoiles (Do not throw foreign bodies into the stars).
Bruce A. Russell contributes a yet-unheard work for solo piano, while Sheila Jaffe performs the Canadian premiere of a solo viola work by internationally acclaimed composer Oscar Bettison. Lastly, Seung Won Oh’s solo percussion piece Circle receives its overdue Canadian premiere, and Toronto’s own Amahl Arulanandam performs his own most recent work for cello and electronics.
