about

Seven composers – three classical and three jazz plus soloist Gord Clements – were commissioned to produce new works that marry the bass clarinet’s beautiful lyrical nature and deep expressive tone with an orchestra of string instruments.

Gord Clements, enjoying international acclaim for his five recordings featuring bass clarinet, is the soloist. Timothy Vernon, Pacific Opera’s renowned conductor, directs a 13 piece chamber orchestra assembled by Kenji Fusé, one of the composers and principal violist of the Victoria Symphony.

The composers also include Misha Piatigorsky from New York, recipient of the prestigious Thelonius Monk International Award for Composition and Toronto’s Don Thompson, frequently the Canadian Jazz Award’s Composer of the Year and recipient of the Order of Canada. Also involved are jazz pianist Karel Roessingh, well-known choral composer Tobin Stokes and Sylvia Rickard of the Canadian Music Centre.
