Harold Brown Tribute Concert
Harold Brown was one of this city's most remarkable musicians, a pianist of extraordinary insight and a collaborative artist of strength and sensitivity. Harold's warmth made young performers feel their art mattered, encouraging them to aspire to greatness, and reminding them to sing from their own humanity. His passing in 2011 was a great loss for Vancouver's entire artistic community; the absence of his wit, passion, and supportive presence are keenly felt.
To celebrate his remarkable legacy, VISI is proud to present a special evening that pairs new work with old, established professionals with emerging artists, and is brimming with stunning, evocative sound.
On the programme:
World premiere of Lloyd Burritt's Moth Poem text by Robin Blaser
Samuel Barber's Three Songs, Op. 45
Oscar Morawetz's 4 Songs on the Poems of Bliss Carman
Tyler Duncan, baritone
Erika Switzer, pianist
Participants from VISI's Advanced Performance Studies Program will also pay homage to Harold Brown's remarkable legacy with performances of select Art Song repertoire they will have prepared with VISI's world-renowned faculty.
