The Odd (But Lovely) Bird

The Odd (But Lovely) Bird evokes the flights and songs of feathered friends with an evening of symphonic and visual art. During the concert, dancer William Yong accompanies the chamber orchestra with choreography and costume changes that summon visions of aviaries and colour-flecked canopies, while narration from Cash Cab Canada host Adam Growe guides listeners through the program.

  • Mathieu Lussier—Odd Bird Concerto for Bassoon: A world premiere from this prolific Canadian composer features soloist Nadina Mackie Jackson soaring through twittering high notes and fluttering runs on her bassoon.
  • Finzi—Love’s Labour’s Lost: Written to accompany a BBC broadcast of the titular Shakespeare play, Finzi’s suite includes such movements as the joyous “Hunt” and playful “Moth” as well as periods of long, slow contemplation.
  • Honegger—Pastoral d’été: Inspired by a relaxing vacation to the Alps, Honneger gave this placid meditation the epigraph “J’ai embrassé l’aube d’été”—”I have embraced the summer dawn”—shortly before realizing he was just hugging the stove.
  • Beethoven—Symphony no. 2: Beethoven wrote his deceptively joyous second symphony just as he began to realize his increasing deafness would be permanent. While still owing a great deal to Haydn and Mozart, new innovations—such as replacing the third movement’s stately minuet with a raucous scherzo—presaged his later revitalization of the form.<p>
