Programme

 

Thomas Adès (England) Polaris
Charles Ives (U.S.A.) Central Park in the Dark
Paul Frehner (Canada) Phantom Suns
Chris Paul Harman (Canada) Coyote Soul

 

Adès' voyage for orchestra, with groups of brass players dispersed throughout alcoves and balconies of the hall, and Ives’ dream, with layered and colliding melodies emerging from and returning to Central Park’s nocturnal calm, use and alter the sense of space in the hall. Frehner and Harman create moods and atmospheres alluding to real and imagined scenarios.
