Written in 2016 especially for Kerson Leong, John Rutter’s ethereal Visions is a violin concerto that includes boys’ choir and harp. We’re thrilled to be able to present it at Scotia Festival with the wonderful Nick Halley and his Capella Regalis choir. Also on tonight’s program are a brand new piano piece by the eminent Canadian composer James Rolfe, written for Simon Docking; and Dominic Desautels with the sweeping romanticism of Brahms’s late clarinet sonata.
