Our final concert brings together four exciting Canadian composers from across the country: Lesley Hinger, Carmen Braden, Mark Limacher, and Omar Daniel. They have created four new works take on pivotal issues currently shaping the world we live in – their own musical documentations of today’s important events. In addition to their works, we are proud to present the Canadian premiere of “On Parole” for piano trio and spatialized strings by internationally celebrated composer Merlijn Twaalhoven (NLD). Omar Daniel’s masterpiece Zwei Lieder nach Rilke (winner of the 1997 Jules Léger Prize) rounds out our concert and features acclaimed soprano Laura Hynes, Land’s End Ensemble, and many of Calgary’s talented musicians.
