The electric chamber consort Arkora, conceived in Vancouver, continues its exploration of connections between past and present with a project of new works by Canadian composers and ancient masterworks highlighting the oeuvre of Hildegard von Bingen. The program offers a combination of historically-informed performance and contemporary re-envisioning of early work performed by Arkora's ensemble of early and new music specialists. At the heart of the program lie Arkora-commissioned works by Dorothy Chang, Tova Kardonne, and Jonathan Wild, as well as world premieres by Curtis Andrews and Benton Roark, composer-performers that have each forged distinct voices in the world of contemporary music through the fusion of different styles. Alongside medieval and Renaissance chants and motets, these works find a meeting place in a concert of voices and instruments from different centuries and traditions, including mridangam, electric guitar, strings, and microtonal keyboard and percussion. For this project Arkora is also joined by special guest and master erhu improviser, Lan Tung. The early works will include the chants Nunc gaudeant and O Virtus Sapientiae and more by Hildegard von Bingen as well as motets by Pérotin, Vicentino, and Lassus.
