This month, Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Composer-in-Residence Edward Top will present and discuss Wolgang Rihm’s Im Innersten and Anton Webern’s Bagatelles for String Quartet and how they relate to one another. Organist and Composer Michael Murray will present André Cormier’s Neuvaine No. 1 for portative organ. CMC/CLC 2012 Emerging composer Kathleen Allan will present a selection of children’s choral works from the perspective of the contemporary composer.

Join us and discover gems you may not know, hear something new and engage in dialogue about the works.  Collectively, we look at the scores, listen to the music and discuss elements that fascinate us, puzzle us, and touch us in emotional ways.  Everyone is welcome to attend.

Wolfgang Rihm (b.1952) is an esteemed German composer of stage, orchestral, chamber, choral, vocal, and piano works that have been performed worldwide. Rihm is a composer who puts a giant question mark over whatever he is doing. Each new work is an answer to the question raised by the previous piece; each new composition poses questions to which he will seek answers in his next work.

Anton Webern (1883‐1945) was an Austrian composer and conductor. He was a member of the Second Viennese School. As a student and significant follower of Arnold Schoenberg, he became one of the best‐known exponents of the twelve‐tone technique; in addition, his innovations regarding schematic organization of pitch, rhythm and dynamics were formative in the musical technique later known as total serialism.

André Cormier’s (b.1969) work has been presented in Canada, the US, Europe and New Zealand. He has written for solo, small and large chamber ensembles, as well as music for opera, dance and collaborative work with visual artists. His works have been commissioned by a variety of artists in Canada, the US and Europe.
