Aventa presents: Streets become liars

November 18, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Aventa Ensemble
Bill Linwood, conductor

Zosha Di Castri – Strange Matter
Christopher Mayo – Streets Become Liars*
Lisa Illean – Cantor(after Willa Cather)*
György Ligeti – Chamber Concerto

*Canadian premiere

In Cantor, Australian composer Lisa Illean draws inspiration from the poetry of Willa Cather; we hear a woman’s voice, gentle but resilient, as she contemplates the land around her, contends with loneliness and finds peace in her solitude.

György Ligeti’s music is perhaps best known to the general public through the films of Stanley Kubrick (Eyes Wide Shut, 2001: A Space Odyssey) and more recently Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island.  Completed in 1970, Ligeti’s Chamber Concertis considered by many to be oneof the twentieth century’s most inspiring and influential works for ensemble.

Pre-concert talk 7:15pm
