Toronto composer and RCM faculty member Brian Current will be launching his first disc entitled This Isn't Silence: Works for Symphony Orchestra on Tuesday May 8 at the Lula Lounge. This Isn't Silence features works played by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, CBC Radio Orchestra, New Music Concerts Ensemble, and Esprit Orchestra.
The launch at Lula Lounge is part of the Esprit Orchestra's New Wave Composers Festival and will include two concerts curated by Brian Current and Scott Good. The evening begins with a reception at 6pm.
Last year I played in a workshop performance of Brian Current's Airline Icarus at the Glenn Gould Studio presented by Soundstreams Canada. I am pleased to report that Airline Icarus went on to be featured at the New York City Opera's Vox 2007.
