Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra New Music Festival (for chronic creative) Feb 3 2011

Steve Salnikowski set me up with this gig. He is the usual symphony photographer.

We are proud to present an international collection of new works as we continue our 20th anniversary celebration! Avner Dorman makes his Canadian debut with his latest work, Not the Shadow: Not After Hans Christian Anderson. WSO’s Principal Violist Daniel Scholz delivers a passionate performance of Krzysztof Penderecki’s romantic-inspired Viola Concerto. Luke Nickel’s L’étoile Noyée, winner of this year’s CMC “Emerging Composer Prize,” receives its premiere performance tonight. Concluding this evening’s program, we bring back another one of NMF’s greatest highlights: Gary Kulesha’s Symphony No.1 (for two conductors).
