Something Old, Something New! The Ide(a)s of March are Upon Us! Rob Harris's Rear View Mirror looks forward to a tonal revival; Tafelmusik expands their chronological envelope in two directions, Esprit makes wave after wave; Pax Christi's new oratorio by Barbara Croall catches the attention of our choral and new music columnists; and summer music education is our special focus, right when warm days are once again possible to imagine. All this and more in our March 2019 edition, available in flipthrough here, and on the stands starting Thursday Feb 28.

It is often a challenge to capture them as the artists they really are. Elisa Citterio seemed to understand that and invited me to photograph the company in unusual spaces, like outside a coffee shop in the Canary District and inside this Cafe Balzac at the Distillery. It loosened everyone up. After seeing the wonderful production of The Leipzig- Damascus Coffee House at Koerner Hall, it all made sense to me. I appreciate her naturalness, elegant simplicity and beauty which I hoped to capture in her portrait. — Cylla von Tiedemann 62 WE ARE ALL MUSIC’S CHILDEN | March’s Child | MJ BUELL 64 FEATURE | Back from Banff – Reflections on a Musical Residency | COLIN STORY 94 REARVIEW MIRROR | Is it Safe to Listen to New Music Again? | ROBERT HARRIS ACD2 2762 Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM+) ACD2 2772 Véronique Lacroix ELLES Schumann | Boulanger | Hensel Clarke | Fuchs | Pidgorna Marina Thibeault Marie-Ève Scarfone AVAILABLE FROM MARCH 8, 2019 64 G R I G O R I A N .
