Professor of music at the Lithuanian Conservatory, Tamulionis espouses a linear polyphonic style in his larger pieces, often inc~rpor~ting folk materials from hts native land. His oeuvre encompasses many genres, including three symphonies, choral works, and numerous accordion pieces. Also on the programme is Jolm Rutter's "Gloria". Then, at 8pm, the Elmer I Iseler Singers and Rosedale United Church Choir combine for a special "Mille1mium Concert." Christos Hatzis' "Everlasting Light'.' and Srul Irving Glick's "Elegy: Psalm 23" j 1 will both receive world premieres on a progranune that includes Bernstein's "Chichester Psalms". Beverley Jolmston (percussion) and Erica Goodman (harp) join conductors Lydia Adams and Wayne Strongman for what promises to be an uplitling evening. Soundstreams Canada contin- A mixed bag ofjazz can be found in town this month, ranging from classic traditional jazz to the avant-garde. 1l1ere is one more CJRT Science Centre Concert this month, Monday March 6 with tl1e Bob Brough/Stan Fomin Q uartet. Stylistically it falls somewhere in the middle range of that series. Long-time jazz fans will surely recognise tl1e name of Bob Brough. He has been an active member of the Toronto scene for many years, is a wonderful saxophone player and a deeply committed musician. His partner in tl1is quartet is newer on the scene and perhaps less well known, but he and Bobby have been working togetl1er now for some time. Ontario Science Centre Auditorium, 770 Don Mills Road, 416-595-0404. Admission is .00, parking free. March 4 at 8pm, Toronto's ues with its Encounters 2000 · series on April 5 once again pairing the works of a Canadian and an international composer on tl1e same concert. Artistic director Lawrence Cherney has tl1is time selected Canadian Jeffrey Ryan and Norwegian Rolf Wallin. "Both t11ese composers are at siinilar stages of their careers, " says Cherney. "Judging from the pieces I've heard, Jeff is a highly skilled craftsman and I have the sense of a very thoughtful composer. While there is a lot on the surface to attract t11e ear, he is also a creator of great depth." Cherney discovered Wallin when that composer won tl1e International Rostrum of Composers last year with "Ground" tor solo cello and 18 divisi strings. "While there is a big intellect here and lots of theory behind his work, Wallin's music also operates at a very visceral level," says Cherney. As an added attraction, Rolf Wallin will perfonn wearing the "controller suit" which he developed at IRCAM, an actual suit of clotl1ing c01mected to an interactive computer and generating electroacoustics. Soloists include Erica Goodman, (harp), Beverley Jolmston (percussion), Shaw1a Rolston (cello) and the Encounters Ensemble will be led by conductor Gary Kulesha. And, the Canadian Opera Company mounts several performances of an early .20~century masterpiece, begmnmg on April 7. Claude Debussy's . "Pelleas et Melisande" ( 1902) ts perhaps the landmark achievement of the French composer's career. An impressionistic stage work that has been described as "Wagnerianism in French dre~s", "Pelleas" is haunting, mystenous, largely devoid of action and yet strangely mesmerizing. Many opera fans regard it as one of the fmest creations in the genre. Although composed a century ago - and certainly no longer "new music" - this is still a unique opera with no real stylistic successor in the literature. Don't pass up this "one of a kind" operatic experience.
