Over the centuries, composers have looked to nature for musical inspiration. Rivers, mountains, valleys, and more have been popular themes composers use in their music. Through the music of Antonin Dvorak and Edward McDowell, trees and woodlands will be explored in this performance. Atlantic Sinfonia has also commissioned a new piece from composer Michael Miller for the occasion.

Tickets available online and at the door.

Musical Ventures presents Winds of Moravia Tour

Featuring Atlantic Sinfonia Wind Octet (two french horns, two oboes, two bassoons, and two clarinets in the classical tradition)

In the late 18th century talented instrumentalists and composers from Moravia (in the present Czech Republic) flooded the musical capital of Vienna stocking their musical ensembles and contributing to the classical style in vogue at that time. A number of composers, now overshadowed by the likes of Mozart, Haydn, and Beethoven, were both prolific and popular in their day. We will highlight the music of some of these forgotten, yet influential musicians.

Join us in February and March to hear works by Mysliveček, Krommer, Streicher, and Wranitzky.

The National Film Board of Canada supported some talented Canadian composers from its inception in 1939 to the middle 1970s. The music of these talented individuals is not always heard, especially the music they wrote that was not destined for a film.

The Atlantic Sinfonia is pleased to present a concert that celebrates the music of some of Canada’s early composers of music for film. These include Robert Fleming, Eldon Rathburn and Lou Applebaum. Their music is elegant, lively and descriptive whether it was music meant for a film or for the concert hall.

Historically, classical music in New Brunswick was performed in only a few settings in the early days. Most likely this would have included the major port of Saint John and possibly the major military garrisons such as in Fredericton. It was consumed by the upper classes of the military and well to do merchants.

Some of the first NB composers include Stephen Humbert of Saint John who composed hymn tunes for the first book of music published in Canada in the early 1800s. He was followed by Bishop John Medley, of Fredericton, who made his mark on New Brunswick through his church building as well as his music.

Join Atlantic Sinofnia as they perform the music of New Brunswick composers such as Eldon Rathburn, Janis Kalnins, Richard Kidd, and Tomy Nicholson.
