On October 22 at 8:00 PM ET, Sharon joins Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne conducted by Lorraine Vaillancourt in the world premiere of a special arrangement of Pierre Mercure’s Dissidence for soprano solo and chamber orchestra by Jonathan Monro. In reflecting about the work, Monro said, “I set out to honour Mercure’s vocal and instrumental intentions while creating even more specific, intimate colours that I know this outstanding ensemble can produce. From the controlled fury of Les lions jaune, to the loneliness of Psaume and the ecstasy of Le cri de joie, each song is a personal journey; and it is my hope that every detail of my orchestrations feels just as personal.” The evening also includes the world premiere of works by all three 2020 Azrieli Music Prize (AMP) winners – Keiko Devaux (Azrieli Commission for Canadian Music), Yotam Haber (Azrieli Commission for Jewish Music), and Yitzhak Yedid (Azrieli Prize for Jewish Music).
