World Premiere February 1, 2019, Dominion-Chalmers Church, Ottawa, Ontario. Nordic Voices and the Gryphon Trio (as part of Scar Tissue)

Programme Notes

Suture is a short, high-energy work for piano trio, adapted from the climactic moment in the large-scale Scar Tissue, written for Nordic Voices and the Gryphon Trio. Exploding out of chaos, the three instruments converge on a single point which threads its way through the music, reaching ever outward to draw the edges together and stitch them closed.

Suture is dedicated to the Gryphon Trio, whose vision has brought so much new music to the world.

The original Scar Tissue was commissioned by the Gryphon Trio in partnership with Chamber Factory for Nordic Voices and the Gryphon Trio. It was made possible with support from Joyce Miller in honour of the Gryphon Trio’s 25th anniversary, the Canada Council for the Arts, and Dr. Glenn Prestwich and the Sounds of Science Commissioning Club.
