Called “…..the most gifted composer of his generation…..” by the renowned conductor and composer Sir David Willcocks, John Rutter’s music is performed around the world and is regularly part of the repertoire of virtually every choir in North America.
Joining Mr. Rutter for this concert will be three superb choirs: The Elmer Iseler Singers, the Capital Chamber Choir, and the Ottawa Children’s Choir.
Thirteen Strings, augmented by some of Canada’s top wind and brass players will also perform.
Ottawa’s Kerson Leong, one of the most outstanding young violinists of his generation will perform Rutter’s “Visions”, a work for solo violin, strings, harp and choir that was written especially for him. The major piec...e on the program will be John Rutter’s “Magnificat“, possibly the greatest of his large-scale works. The remainder of the program will feature a range of shorter works by John Rutter.
The London Evening Standard wrote, “...for the infectiousness of his melodic invention and consummate craftsmanship, Rutter has few peers.”
+++++++++++++++++++++
Sacré « le plus doué des compositeurs de sa génération » par le renommé chef de chœur et compositeur Sir David Willcocks, John Rutter est l’auteur d’une musique interprétée dans le monde entier et par à peu près tous les chœurs d’Amérique du Nord.
Participeront aussi au concert trois excellents chœurs: les Elmer Iseler Singers, le Capital Chamber Choir et l’Ottawa Children’s Choir. L’ensemble Thirteen Strings, auquel se joindront certains des meilleurs interprètes des vents et des cuivres du Canada sera aussi de la partie. Kerson Leong, l’un des plus remarquables jeunes violonistes de sa génération jouera Visions de M. Rutter, œuvre pour violon solo, cordes, harpe et chœur et composée à son intention. L’œuvre maîtresse au programme est sans conteste le Magnificat, toujours de M. Rutter, peut-être la plus impressionnante de ses compositions d’envergure. Le reste du programme comprendra une sélection de ses pièces plus brèves.
Dans le London Evening Standard de Londres on pouvait lire, « pour ce qui est de mélodies inventives et contagieuses et de la maîtrise de la forme, John Rutter a peu de rivaux »
