Programme Note:
In considering a subject matter for a short piece celebrating Canada, I pondered what makes Canadians special. I immediately thought of our admirable spirit in coming together to help each other in times of need. I considered the quick and inspiring responses from so many across the country to the wildfires in the west, for example. This piece begins with a lonely and hopeless statement from the cello section. From there, the others spread the word from instrument to instrument across a single note, resulting in the brass summoning for help. The message is to spread the word and step up: it’s time to act.
