Five striking visionaries. Gerald Barry’s pithy and unflinching piano trio receives its Toronto premiere alongside world premieres from two internationally-acclaimed Canadians. Cameron’s sparse yet richly detailed music forms a haunting foil to the alluring beauty of Sharman’s multi-movement Moments. Music from the next generation of Irish composers ranges from Hamilton’s energetic bursts of ordered madness to Walshe’s gritty exploration of found sounds.
