Programme Note:
Triple Concerto is dedicated to Bramwell Tovey, who suggested its creation after hearing members of Bellows & Brass play McDonald's "Three for Two" at the Winnipeg New Music Festival. The concerto was commissioned by Bellows & Brass with assistance from the Laidlaw Foundation and Wilfrid Laurier Development Fund. It is the most recent composition written specifically for Bellows & Brass by Mr. McDonald. Each performer is featured in solo, duet and trio settings, as well as in dialogue with a concertante group, and the full orchestra.
