I’m thrilled to finally be working with Vancouver composer Alfredo Santa Ana — not once, not twice, but three times this year: on January 19 I’ll premiere his new trio, “On Fairness”, with violinist Karen Gerbrecht and cellist Olivia Blander. This performance is part of a conference at the Sheraton Wall Centre in Vancouver entitled “Explorations of Fairness.” The very next day (January 20) the Redshift Music Society will present a new work of Alfredo’s for eight percussionists, along with new and recent works by composers Kathleen Allan, Jocelyn Morlock, Jordan Nobles, James O’Callaghan and Chris Sivak. This event, called B.A.M.! takes place at the Blusson Spinal Centre at 8pm. Finally, Alfredo will write a new work for me and harpsichordist Chris Bagan, which will be premiered on March 20 at “A Month of Tuesdays” presented by Music on Main. Alfredo’s new work will be a companion piece to Couperin’s “Concert Royal No. 4”, which will also be performed that evening, along with music by Cassandra Miller, Edward Top, Jocelyn Morlock, G.F. Handel, and J.S. Bach. More info on that soon!
