"Innovations en concert is delighted to present the leading contemporary music pianist Eve Egoyan in concert on Saturday, March 22, 2014 at 8 pm at Montreal’s Chapelle Historique du Bon-Pasteur. Ms. Egoyan’s program features three works composed in the last decade – James Tenney’s To Weave (a meditation), Piers Hellawell’s Piani, Latebre, and Linda Catlin Smith’s Nocturnes and Chorales – as well as Michael Finnissy’s Folkolore, Section 2, written in 1993.

The Irish composer Piers Hellawell’s work represents, in his own words, a “reaction against the ornate surfaces of much instrumental music of our time”. At the same time, his austere approach does not shrink from uniting “disparate, even dangerous, elements under one roof”, and terms like “bluesy”, “inventive”, “mysterious” recur in critics’ descriptions of his work. In a similar vein, James Tenney (1934-2006) presents a concentrated sonic reflection in his work, pondering the notions of noise as music, psychoacoustic perception, and acoustic counterpoint.

We are also proud to present the Montreal premiere of a work by a leading Canadian composer: Linda Catlin Smith, whose work is often informed by her appreciation of the work of writers and painters, including – among many others – Marguerite Duras, Cormac McCarthy, Cy Twombly, and Mark Rothko."
