Programme Notes

Same Here is about the freedom and release that can come from speaking a secret truth, and the solidarity and validation that can come from being heard and understood. In this short work, the English horn and bassoon are two voices that tell their stories and discover that those stories are variations of the same story. Short motives alternate back and forth as each voice responds to the other, gradually intertwining until they join in unison, empowered and stronger together.

Same Here was commissioned by the Artemis Musicians’ Society for Morgan Zentner (English horn) and Katelin Coleman (bassoon), with support from the Canada Council for the Arts.
