Programme

 

Philip Cashian (England) the world's turning (World Premiere)*
Samuel Andreyev (Canada) The Flash of the Instant (World Premiere)**
Robert Aitken (Canada) Berceuse for flute and orchestra
Daniel Bjarnason (Iceland) Over Light Earth


Aitken's work reflects the balance of Yin and Yang in a commemoration of family members, friends and associates "who sleep before us". Cashian explores momentum, stasis, mechanisms and patterns inspired by new sculptures of Stephen Vince, while Andreyev's transcendent sonic poetry moves in prismatic micro-variations. Bjarnason draws inspiration from and pays tribute to New York School painters Mark Rothko and Jackson Pollock.
