Jonathan Harvey Concert Postponed: New Music Concerts

Replaced by Screening of “Towards and Beyond” & Performance
Friday March 12 at 8:00PM at Betty Oliphant Theatre
Admission is Free.

For Immediate Release – Toronto, February 17, 2010: New Music Concerts regrets to announce that due to health issues, celebrated British composer Jonathan Harvey is unable to travel at this time. As a result, the March 12 concert has been postponed until next season; the date and venue will be confirmed at a later date. In place of the scheduled event, New Music Concerts will present a free screening of “Towards and Beyond”, a 48 minute DVD documentary by Barrie Gavin featuring an exclusive interview in which Jonathan Harvey discusses his music and philosophy. As an added treat, Robert Aitken (flute) and David Swan (piano) will perform Harvey's "Run Before Lightning" composed in 2004 for the Concours Rampal flute competition, and Fujiko Imajishi will revisit "Reconciliation", a solo violin piece written for her by Geoffrey Palmer which she first performed for New Music Concerts in 2002. Mr. Palmer, whose flute concerto “Cancri 55” was to be premiered on the now postponed concert, will be in attendance.
