music for voices and early instruments

Music by James Rolfe

Breathe is a new CD of works for voices and early instruments by Toronto composer James Rolfe. Collaborating with acclaimed Canadian writers André Alexis (Giller Prize winner), Steven Heighton (Governor General’s Award for Literature), and Anna Chatterton (Dora Award winner), Rolfe’s music ranges from intense drama to ethereal lyricism, from virtuosic to serene, portraying the erotic and spiritual aspects of love and longing with his unmistakable and intimate vocal writing. This recording features luminous performances from such stellar performers as Suzie LeBlanc, Alexander Dobson, Monica Whicher, and The Toronto Consort led by David Fallis.

CD Launch to follow the Toronto Masque Theatre presentation of Dido and Aeneas by Henry Purcell and Nahum Tate, and Aeneas and Dido by James Rolfe and André Alexis:
