newMUSIC The Music of Peter Jancewicz ***Cancelled***

Susan Hlasny, piano
Chris Sandvoss, viola
Peter Jancewicz, composer/piano

Please join pianist Susan Hlasny, violist Chris Sandvoss and composer/pianist Peter Jancewicz at the Asylum for Art for an evening of original music inspired by Canadian art and poetry: Evening Rain for piano, Six Canadian Sketches for viola and piano (world première) and Red Coat for piano duet. The music is eclectic, from folk-flavoured to hard-edged contemporary, from plainchant to impressionist, from jazz to minimalist, as reflected by the paintings and poetry.

Evening Rain (2005) is featured on Peter’s CD, Music for Piano (2013), inspired by a poem of the same name by Vancouver poet Carlo Toselli. It features a meditative opening and closing, with a brilliant middle section over an ostinato, imitating the spattering of heavy rain on a window.

Six Canadian Sketches (2021) was commissioned by violist Chris Sandvoss. Each piece was inspired by a Canadian painting, which include: North Shore, Lake Superior by Lawren Harris, Entre les quatre murs du vent, j’écoute-Nadaka by Jean-Paul Riopelle, Heart and Soul by Chris Sandvoss, Mount Cory by Catharine Robb Whyte, Loon by Norval Morrisseau, Flight by Paresh Athparia. The pieces are in various styles, from folk-flavoured to hard-edged contemporary, from plainchant to impressionist, as suggested by the paintings. This performance is the première.

Red Coat (2015) is based on the blues structure with a film-noir feel. The second movement, Mirage, was inspired by “A Thought”, by Carlo Toselli. It is in a mesmerizing minimal style. The last movement, Chickadee, was inspired by the distinctive springtime song of the chickadee. The inspiration for a smokin’ middle section came from the famous Köln Concert by Keith Jarrett.
