08 ALUMNI CONCERT: Rudolf Komorous Celebration @ 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Alumni Concert Series co-presented by The Canadian Music Centre and the University of Victoria
Rudolf Komorous Celebration

A concert of distinguished School of Music alumni performing music by legendary Czech-Canadian composer, bassoonist, and teacher Rudolf Komorous, in celebration of his 85th birthday, his contribution to Canadian music and to advanced music education. From 1971–1989 Rudolf Komorous taught composition and theory at UVic and later served as the School of Music’s Director. Many of his students went on to become successful composers and his music has made a major imprint on new music in Canada and beyond.

Works include Olympia (1964), Lurid Bride (1999), and the premiere of Stone House (2016) composed especially for this concert. Also on the program is Morning Glory by Linda Catlin Smith — one of Komorous's former students.

Prior to the concert, a short film inspired by the music of Rudolf Komorous — produced and directed by award-winning filmmaker John Bolton — will be screened at 7:45 p.m. in MacLaurin B037. All are welcome to attend.

07 EMERGING ARTISTS ALUMNI CONCERT @ 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Featuring:
Jiten Beairsto, violin (BMus '14)
Sydney Tetarenko, clarinet (BMus '13)
Emily Burton, cello (BMus '11)
Natalie Lo, piano

Vancouver-based musicians Jiten Beairsto, Sydney Tetarenko, Emily Burton, and Natalie Lo present a program featuring two of the most significant chamber music works of the mid-20th century: Bartok's Contrasts and Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time. Composed only three years apart for very similar instrumentation, these works are nevertheless radically different in style and subject matter. Bartok's music, gritty and earthbound, centres on folk music and dances, while Messiaen's Quartet looks towards eternity and the heavens.
