THE MUSIC:

Tonight’s concert is comprised of four powerful concerti of the 20th and 21st centuries. Much of the evening’s work is influenced by, or responds to, the beauty and power of the sea and the sky, including Anna Clyne's luxuriant Prince of Clouds, Jocelyn Morlock's radioactive Cobalt, John Estacio's heroic Trumpet Concerto, and Alfred Schnittke’s famous and highly influential Concerto Grosso No. 1 – a Canadian première in this version for two solo flutes. Along with guest violinist Rachel Barton Pine, the talented soloists include no less than four of the principal players of VSO!
