Toronto, ON – The young, fresh, and vibrant Rosedale Winds specialize in innovative concerts that showcase a wide array of classical music and intrigue audiences of all ages. For this upcoming concert, the Rosedale Winds present exciting music in a convivial atmosphere. Taking place at the Canadian Music Centre’s intimate performance venue in downtown Toronto, the event will engage your mind with the composer’s cultural expressions.
In this program, the Rosedale Winds present music inspired by popular literature such as Gabriel Garcias Marquez’s 100 years of Solitude and Ambrose Bierce's Devil’s Dictionary. The program features Canadian composers, Wolfgang Heinz Otto Bottenberg, Toronto’s own Gary Kulesha, and American composer, Judai Adashi.
In addition, the program will include Judai Adashi’s Songs and Dances of Macondo accompanying excerpts of text from 100 Years of Solitude to give you a unique perspective on the widely acclaimed novel in a special musical setting. The Rosedale Winds are also going to play one of Canada’s most celebrated chamber works, Bagatelles from the Devil’s Dictionary for Woodwind Quintet. In this piece, Kulesha musically depicts Bierce’s witty definitions from The Devil’s Dictionary, such as dictator, idiot and cynic. Come take a glimpse into the modern composer’s view of the culture around us.
