Arts hot ticket: VSO New Music Festival: (re)creations NMF06

    1 of 1 2 of 1

      January 16 at the Orpheum.

      Vancouver Symphony Orchestra’s former music director Bramwell Tovey returns to the podium here with two fantastic contemporary works that hail from his homeland.

      The highlight should be Max Richter’s 21st-century Antonio Vivaldi update, Recomposed, in which the German-born British innovator reforges The Four Seasons for solo violin, strings, and electronics, forming a pulsating, grooving new creation all its own. It shares the program with Luxury Suite from Powder Her Face by another Brit composer, Thomas Ades.
