Programme


Marc-André Dalbavie (France) Color
Andrew Staniland (Canada) Stab at Matter (World Premiere)*
Scott Good (Canada) Resonance Unfolding 2 (World Premiere)**
Xiaogang Ye (China) The Last Paradise for violin and orchestra

 

The Chinese countryside and ethnic elements surface in Xiaogang Ye's musical images of paradise. Staniland, thinking Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator, smashes musical protons at the speed of light to enjoy the collisions and resulting fallouts. Good explores and extends the realm of spectral techniques while Dalbavie immerses the listener in a spatial sensation of continuous transformation.
