THE ROCKEYS DUO RESIDENCY

Luciane Cardassi, piano
Katelyn Clark, harpsichord

 

The rockeys duo Open Rehearsal / Workshop
with composers Linda Catlin Smith and Anna Pidgorna.

Saturday, February 14th, 2pm
 

In the midst of a weekend in Toronto that includes two concerts, The rockeys duo (featuring pianist Luciane Cardassi and harpsichordist Katelyn Clark) will be hosting an open rehearsal at the Canadian Music Centre at 2pm on Saturday, February 14. The rehearsal is free, and open to the public.

Contemporary composers and performers have taken an active interest in the unique sound of the harpsichord, and the instrument has gained a higher profile among artists in Canada as a result of musicians such as Clark and Cardassi. The duo explore a unique sound world that includes repertoire from such noted Canadian composers as Linda Catlin Smith, Jimmie LeBlanc, Anna Pidgorna, Isaiah Ceccarelli, and Brazilian composer Antonio Celso Ribeiro. In this workshop, Cardassi and Clark will focus on works by Linda Catlin Smith who will be joining the rehearsal in person, and Anna Pidgorna who will join remotely by video conference.

The rehearsal will explore each piece, and demonstrate the relationship of the interpreters and their method as a duo.

Centrediscs CD Launch: Points of Departure

Thursday, February 19, 5:30pm

Join Centrediscs to celebrate the launch of its newest release, POINTS OF DEPARTURE, featuring percussionist Nicholas Papador.

About Points of Departure Nicholas Papador writes, "When I moved to Canada in 2005 I had the good fortune of participating in the Windsor Canadian Music Festival presented by the Windsor Symphony Orchestra and University of Windsor School of Music. Over the course of several years, and after exposure to a fantastic body of work by a range of composers, I became enthralled with the rich repertoire of contemporary Canadian solo percussion music. In 2008, I made a commitment to exploring this repertoire and promoting it in domestic and international venues. The project began in earnest upon becoming a permanent resident of Canada and receiving a Canada Council Grant to prepare and present solo Canadian percussion works. After a number recitals and international performances of this material set about documenting the pieces that appear on Points of Departure. With expert guidance of Producer Ray Dillard and engineer Douglas Romanow, I completed the recording right about the same time I became a citizen of Canada. To me, this recording not only documents essential Canadian percussion compositions, but also reflects my musical journey in as a relatively recent Canadian."

Featured composers on the CD:

Nicolas Gilbert
Christien Ledroit
Isabelle Panneton
Nicholas Papador
François Rose
Linda Catlin Smith

Nicholas will perform a selection of works on the disc on marimba, vibraphone and a small percussion set up.
