Le loup de Lafontaine

CUSSON Le loup de Lafontaine*
BJARNASON Violin Concerto

Métis composer Ian Cusson, one of the NAC’s inaugural Carrefour Composers, is known for crafting intricate pieces that explore the intersection of cultures. John Storgårds conducts Cusson’s Le loup de Lafontaine*, inspired by the legend of a menacing wolf that terrorized one of Ontario’s oldest French-speaking villages, ultimately uniting the diverse and disparate groups who founded the town against a common enemy.

Then Daníel Bjarnason’s Violin Concerto bends and pushes technical boundaries, making it the perfect vehicle for guest violinist Pekka Kuusisto’s fresh approach to repertoire and love of improvisation. The result is a spot-on match between two artists who are strong advocates of new music and ground-breaking techniques. Don’t miss this fantastic collaboration!
