Description

Join us for Erato's retrospective 2018-19 season, "Past, Present, and Future". Each concert explores our relationship to points in time via music, new and old, where voice and instrument combine.

Opening the season, Erato Ensemble Presents a concert filled with music from or about the past. The concert will include classics from the vocal chamber-music repertoire, such as Schubert's Shepherd on the Rock, Dvořák's Songs My Mother Taught Me, and songs by Ives and Brahms. Honouring the ensemble's past, they will perform Will George's Twilight Song from the ensemble's first season. A rich assortment of contemporary pieces will include works by Rodney Sharman, Jocelyn Morlock, and Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

"Present" shines a light on the vocal/instrumental chamber music being written today. The concert features Jocelyn Morlock and Bill Richardson's song cycle, Perruqueries. In collaboration with Vancouver's Art Song Lab, we will present arrangements of several pieces written for the program, including Remy Siu's "Terminal Love" (previously arranged for Erato Ensemble), Katya Pine’s Wood Sleeves, and Bekah Simms’s Requiem for a Penny, as well as pieces by Katerina Gimon, Jonathan Daniel, and Christopher Reiche Boucher from ASL 2018.

"Future" examines what kind of music has us looking forward. The first half of the concert will present a selection of the historical repertoire that were considered ahead of their time, including selections from the Second Viennese School, and visionary Canadian composer, Harry Somers. The second half will feature works by today’s leading voices in vocal/instrumental chamber music, including Caroline Shaw and Kaija Saariajo. Known for his innovative, interactive marriage of text and music, the concert will also feature the world premiere of a choose-your-own-adventure, interactive art song for 4 singers, flute(s), clarinet(s), violin, and cello by Michael Park.
