Mark Armanini is very interested in his players and how they work with their instruments, and how the music lies under their fingers. Hence the music of The Spirit Emerges is in concertante style: he likes to contrast and blend soloists with a larger ensemble, which he feels is symbolic of human relationships, the individual and the social. Which leads to yet another conundrum: all these people from Vancouver - in the Czech Republic. "Music is sharing, connection", says Armanini. The roots of composed, "classical" music are European; and "the great passion and love of music in Europe... it's about respect, people honoring each other."
