Brett Dean’s dazzling trumpet concerto depicts various aspects of a heroic figure, from confident to introspective. It is performed by the celebrated Swedish soloist for whom it was composed. Australian composer James Ledger pays tribute to Anton Webern and John Lennon, two composers whom he deeply admires, and who died tragically. Also witness the world première of From the Vortex Perspective, a TSO commission from composer Paul Frehner, with live mixing of film by filmmaker Peter Mettler.
Note: Composers James Ledger and Paul Frehner will be present at this performance.
This concert forms part of Toronto Symphony Orchestra's New Creations festival.
Featured non-Australian music: Frehner/Mettler
