Kopernikus by Claude Vivier.
Kopernikus conducted by Lorraine Vaillancourt… 30 years later! The Université de Montréal’s contemporary music studio rises once again to the challenge of presenting an opera it premiered in 1979. The ensemble director’s legendary attention to detail promises a brilliant return for Vivier’s work! In the years between 1979 and 2008, Kopernikus has stood the test of time; its spiritual and dream like universe — conjured up by a masterful conductor — will be delivered whole. Let it take you away!
- Kopernikus (1978-79), 67:002 sopranos, mezzo-soprano, tenor, baritone, bass, oboe, 3 clarinets, trumpet, trombone, violin and stereo fixed medium
