THE MUSIC:

The VSO’s Composer-in-Association Marcus Goddard penned his new Violin Concerto specifically for the NMF’s outstanding guest soloist, Rachel Barton Pine. That debut performance, alongside another world premiere by VSO Composer-in-Residence Jocelyn Morlock already makes this concert a “must attend” event! Jocelyn Morlock’s Purcell-infused piece, titled Night, Herself, picks up the thread of early music co-existing with and influencing new music. Dawn to Dusk also 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, orWinter Sky”. We also experience Andrew Staniland’s Vast Machine, inspired by a region where day and night have no meaning.

+MARCUS GODDARD’S VIOLIN CONCERTO WAS COMMISSIONED WITH THE GENEROUS SUPPORT OF THE HUGH DAVIDSON FUND OF THE VICTORIA FOUNDATION.
