Of Time & Flames: Poetry in Music

Music that inspires!

Join us for a remarkable evening at the Winspear, featuring an impressive lineup of musical artists. Leading the way is Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser, Canada's self-proclaimed Disruptor Conductor and musical activist, who will conduct four visionary orchestral compositions crafted over the past three eventful years.

  • Zosha di Castri, the Winspear's 2002 Young Composer Project creator, explores how we experience the passage of time in her latest work.
  • Derrick Skye’s tone poem integrates musical practices from different cultures.
  • Esa-Pekka Salonen’s ravishing fantasy evokes a surreal ballroom scene and is full of virtuosity, ecstasy, and good humour.
  • And finally, the Winspear's 2023 Young Composer Project creator, will have one of his works performed by the Edmonton Symphony Orchestra for the very first time.

Experience a night of moving music!
