Adventure and discovery come with premiering new works. Along with the new pieces by Llugdar, Scime, and Rea, Evangelista’s Accelerando, being premiered by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra in November 2016, is also new. Nancarrow, famous for complex player piano pieces not playable by humans, is represented by an orchestral gem that can be performed by Esprit’s excellent musicians. Llugdar, composing as though she is inside sound, aims at expression through complex textures, many contrasts and extremes in the same piece. Scime’s piece is a new panel of a triptyque for Esprit.
