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.

The Rosedale Winds, Toronto’s new dynamic woodwind quintet comprises five enthusiastic young professionals. The Rosedale Winds formed at the National Academy Orchestra of the Brott Music Festival in 2012. Our mission is to explore and expand contemporary woodwind quintet repertoire by collaborative projects, commissioning new works, and educational outreach. The Rosedale Winds believe in enthusiastic communication between the performers and the audience. We strongly support Canadian composers by actively programming their music in our concert events.

Our goal for the 2013-2014 concert season is to promote the hidden gems of Canadian contemporary wind quintet music that are audience accessible, witty and creative. We present our concert with the generous support of the Toronto Arts Council and SOCAN foundation.
