José Evangelista (Canada) - Accelerando
Analia Llugdar (Canada) - El canto del viento**
Conlon Nancarrow (U.S.A./Mexico) - Piece #2 for Small Orchestra*
John Rea (Canada) - Survivance***
Adam Scime (Canada) - Surfacing**

Alex Pauk - conductor

*Canadian Premiere

**World Premiere commissioned with generous support from The Koerner Foundation

***World Premiere commissioned in collaboration with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra


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 MSO 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.

Enhance your concert experience with a Pre-Concert Chat hosted by Juno Award-winning Canadian composer Alexina Louie. Begins at 7:15pm, included with the purchase of your ticket!
