Our cover Raymond Luedeke, composer and Joel Quarrington, bass. PHOTO: MICHAEL SHAW Composer Raymond Luedeke, joined the clarinet section of the T.S.O. in 1981. Raised in New Jersey, he studied first at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, then the Vienna Academy, followed by four years in the U.S. Air Force Band. He returned to school, to study composition under Alan Stout at Northwestern University near Chicago, and, for a summer, with George Crumb at Dartmouth College in New Hampshire. Raymond's concerto for double bass will be performed by T.S.O. principal double bass player, Joel Quarrington November 8, as part of the Made in Canada Festival. The soloist in the concerto, Joel Quarrington, is well known in Toronto. His accomplishments, too numerous to list, include winning the CBC Talent Festival and over 200 solo appearances world-wide. The Made in Canada Festival of Canadian Music, November 1-9 amounts to a crash course in contemporary Canadian music, featuring many composers and a stylistic range that foils any attempt to dismiss contemporary music as all one thing or another. It's a great opportunity to broaden your listening range! The Canadian Music Centre will even arrange a "composer companion" to attend the concert of your choice with you, as a musical guide. (Details on our back cover.) CONCERT NOTES continue on page 8 and page 9 A celebration of 20th-century Canadian and international music.
