Spotlight on Toronto I : Raging Against the Machine : Coming Together
co-presented with Ensemble Paramirabo
Raging Against the Machine: Coming Together is the 2nd incarnation of an innovative and exciting concert program reuniting contemporary music ensembles from two of Canada’s largest cultural centres. Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) and Thin Edge New Music Collective (Toronto) join forces to present a concert of works for double sextet including three new commissions by composers from across Canada. This project aims to establish meaningful connections between artists and organizations with distinct geographical, cultural and linguistic identities. Raging Against the Machine features Frederic Rzewski’s Coming Together, Yannis Kyriakides’ Karaoke Etudes, and new works by Colin Labadie (ON), James O’Callaghan (QC) and Anna Pidgorna (BC). This concert will also be the album release for TENMC’s premiere recording: Raging Against the Machine.
