A Canadian Composer’s Death-Obsessed Search for Connection

November 3, 2017
National

"TORONTO — Death-haunted, drawn to danger and desperate for connection, with his ceremonies in sound charting transitions from life to something beyond it, the Canadian composer Claude Vivier should be the great downer of modern music.

But so shimmering are Vivier’s drones, so sweetly childlike his invented languages and mystical geographies, so energetic his need to communicate his cravings and insecurities, that the effect is one of warmth rather than dread. He’s not trying to scare or sadden us; he wants to be our friend..."

ISCM 2017: Local composing stars Jocelyn Morlock and Lisa Cay Miller weigh in with World New Music Days picks

November 3, 2017
National

"It’s not the ISCM World New Music Days’ push for gender parity that makes Jocelyn Morlock and Lisa Cay Miller two of the busiest people in Vancouver: it’s that each is an exceptional composer (and, in Miller’s case, pianist). As composer in residence with the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, Morlock will present That Tingling Sensation at the Orpheum on Sunday (November 5) and has a piece on the bill for the National Arts Centre Orchestra’s opening-night gala (see page 14).

The Shaman | Arctic Symphony – Orchestral Music of Vincent Ho

November 1, 2017
National

"Several months ago in this column, in reference to Harry Freedman’s orchestral works, I noted that “I grew up understanding that what [identified] Canadian music as Canadian [were] aural landscapes reminiscent of the north, stark and angular, crisp and rugged, but at the same time lush and evocative.” I had that feeling again listening to The Shaman | Arctic Symphony – Orchestral Music of Vincent Ho (Centrediscs CMCCD 24317) featuring the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, of which Ho was the composer-in-residence between 2007 a

ISCM 2017: Canada's largest-ever gathering of new-music composers embarks on an aural adventure

November 1, 2017
National

"It’s all new, and almost a hundred years old. When the International Society for Contemporary Music convenes World New Music Days 2017 in Vancouver, it will present 35 concerts, soundwalks, and seminars, along with several hundred compositions, almost all of them previously unheard in these parts. But the society itself dates back to a time when giants walked the earth—giants with names like Arnold Schoenberg, Anton Webern, Alban Berg, and Leoš Janáček, who convened the ISCM in Salzburg, Austria, circa 1922..."






Soundstreams goes cerebral, to haunting effect

October 31, 2017
National

"The Canadian contemporary music company Soundstreams, known for difficult and cerebral works, has mounted a music and theatre production about the life and ideas of admired Quebecois composer Claude Vivier (1948-1983), whose life was rough and tumultuous and whose music was cold, luminous and haunting. The production, titled Musik Für das Ende (which is the name of one of two Vivier pieces performed during the show), is at Toronto's Crow's Theatre, a glittering new building in a formerly industrial quarter..."
