Arraymusic Ensemble and Robert W Stevenson perform works by Tenney and Vivier.
Let’s give a warm welcome to Toronto’s Arraymusic as it joins in our celebration of Claude Vivier! A visit from this ensemble during our tribute to the legendary Québécois composer is an absolute must: two years before Vivier’s death, Arraymusic commissioned a work that would later bear the rather enigmatic title of Et je reverrai cette ville étrange (And I will see this strange city again). But exactly which city? We’re leaving it up to these Toronto musicians to paint a picture of the mysterious universe in this work, even though it’s actually just outside the door!
