Description:

Award-winning WindRose Trio closes its 9th season with a World Premiere of Meta-tation by Edmonton composer/saxophonist Charles Stolte. Dr. Stolte’s compostions have been featured on tours through Germany and Poland, and at the World Saxophone Congresses in Montreal and Minnesota.
The trio is excited to perform a rarely played gem by Alexandre Tansman for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Bassoon, Trumpet, Viola, and Cello. WindRose will be joined by Western Canadian Music Award nominee Chenoa Anderson, ESO principal cellist Colin Ryan, ESO violist Rhonda Henshaw, and Edmonton favourite Russell Whitehead. Also on the program is a charming duet for trumpet and bassoon by Tad Russo, a musical setting of The Wind in the Willows by John Frith, and a trio for oboe, viola, and cello by Maurice Saylor.
