Toronto Symphony Orchestra's New Creations Festival wraps up with Water, a tender and dynamic piece by Jonny Greenwood of the iconic English rock group, Radiohead. It adds a tambura, an East Indian instrument, to the orchestra. Brett Dean presents a vocal/instrumental suite of excerpts from his forceful, surreal, and highly praised 2010 opera, Bliss. As an ear-opening final bonus, DJ Skratch Bastid creates a remix of music from the Festival.
