Have you ever wondered what the visual magic of fireflies would sound like? The premiere of Carrefour composer Keiko Devaux’s Bioluminescence, a new work for brass septet, captures just that sound, and will leave you feeling spellbound. *WORLD PREMIERE* NAC Orchestra commission as part of the Carrefour Composer Program, made possible by the Canada Council for the Arts.
Finnish composer Sebastian Fagerlund took inspiration from his own opera, Autumn Sonata, to write his Octet, “Autumn Equinox”. The octet’s three movements are full of reflection and energy, colliding and overlapping and constantly creating new sonic experiences as the music unfolds. NACO Principal Guest Conductor John Storgårds joins our musicians as a special guest to lead this exciting work.
