Volume 23 No 5 | February 2018 ON OUR COVER PHOTO: ALICE HONG The hockey shoot happened on the same day as the more formal shoot, and we completed both within roughly two hours. The rink is just behind Bryan’s apartment, by Ramsden Park. We brought all our gear to the RCM where we did the formal shoot, and then crammed ourselves and Alice into Bryan’s Subaru: so there were three people, four cellos (two wooden, two carbon) two garment bags and a bunch of photography gear crammed into that car. We were set on a more casual shoot for contrast as we feel that dichotomy is a big part of who we are as people and as musicians. Representing Canadian music and our “Canadianness” in general is also a big part of who we are and what we do, so the hockey and flannel were sort of a tongue-in-cheek way of expressing that sentiment. As for the shots themselves, we didn’t have specific ideas for either shoot, so things just flowed out in an impromptu fashion once we arrived at the spaces. The shootout photos were especially fun to do and like a lot of that day were an off-the-cuff idea. — Amahl Arulanandam ACD2 2726 FEATURES 7 OPENER | Tracking Changes and Changing Tracks | DAVID PERLMAN 8 FEATURE | Cello Contagion: Eastward Bound with VC2 | SARA CONSTANT 11 FEATURE | Humber at 50: A Celebration Through Music | COLIN STORY 13 FEATURE | The Craft of Ēriks Ešenvalds | BRIAN CHANG 15 FEATURE | Vocal Milestones: Giving Voice to New Musical Ideas | DAVID JAEGER 62 REMEMBERING | Remembering Dima … Dmitri Hvorostovsky | SVETLANA DVORETSKY 63 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | MJ BUELL 84 CD LAUNCH | Nick Fraser at the Rex | STUART BROOMER The People’s Purcell reunites tenor Michael Slattery and La Nef to perform some of the most beautiful music by Henry Purcell.
