The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra's 5th annual New Music Festival shines a spotlight on new creations, featuring great Canadian and international composers, renowned guest artists, and collaborations with Early Music Vancouver and Standing Wave. Curated by Maestro Bramwell Tovey and VSO Composer-in-Residence Jocelyn Morlock, the New Music Festival also features internationally renowned violinist Rachel Barton Pine.
Featuring the world première of Marcus Goddard's Violin Concerto for Rachel Barton Pine and new work by Jocelyn Morlock, Dawn to Dusk journeys from the raucously avian morning of Eve de Castro-Robinson's Aurora to Samy Moussa's moody Nocturne and Kaija Saariaho's hypnotic, gorgeous Ciel d'hiver.
In both art and life, violinist Rachel Barton Pine has an extraordinary ability to connect with people. Celebrated as a leading interpreter of great classical works, her performances combine her innate gift for emotional communication and her scholarly fascination with historical research. She plays with passion and conviction across an extensive repertoire. Audiences are thrilled by her dazzling technique, lustrous tone, and infectious joy in music-making.
