Tonight’s concert at Koerner Hall with NEXUS, Steve Reich, Ryan Scott, Greg Oh, Simon Docking, David Occhipinti, James Brown and Roberto Occhipinti, was SO amazing! There was excitement, complexity, simplicity, anticipation, all sorts of unexpected delights:The rock instrumentation of Reich’s 2 x5; Russell Hartenberger on drum set! The growing murmur of anticipation in the crowd during Music For Pieces of Wood. The roar of appreciation at the end of each piece. The remarkable premiere of the new Mallet Quartet. The exquisite acoustics of Koerner Hall. The sheer pleasure of making music together, that was evident on each musician’s face. If you were unable to attend, we are pleased to announce that CBC will be broadcasting the concert on May 14th on Radio 2’s The Signal, 10 pm to midnight, 94.1 FM. Tune in! We are all looking forward to reliving an exceptional evening!
What an amazing evening with Steve Reich!
