2013 Chutzpah! Festival presents War, Love, and Loss
Monday, February 11, 2013 @ 7:30pm
War, Love and Loss, a concert of new works, is presented by the Vancouver Inter-Cultural Orchestra in collaboration with the Pacific Baroque Orchestra. The journey in time moves from ancient texts and narratives to modern work that highlights contemporary composers writing new intercultural works for period instruments. The cycle of works moves from Dutch-composer Christina Oorebeek’s settings of the ancient Chinese book 36 Strategies (militaristic tactics); to Canadian-composer Mark Armanini’s music based on Chinese poetry from the Tang dynasty about family and connectedness, to Canadian-composers Farshi Damandari and Moshe Denburg’s take on Farsi (modern Iranian language) poetry and traditional Ladino (mix of hispanicized people in Latin America) and Hebrew songs about love and loss.
