THE CBC VANCOUVER ORCHESTRA

MARIO BERNARDI
conductor


...The program justified itself with...the premiere of a ravishing Canadian work, Christos Hatzis' Confessional for cello and orchestra, featuring cellist Shauna Rolston. The piece represents a series of evolutions in faith and is profoundly beautiful, sensuous and full of contrast, with a radiant (and difficult) part for the cello. Rolston, as precise as she was fearless, was amazing, and so was the orchestra in a role that shimmers with exotic colours. How often do you hear a piece of new music and want to rehear it again right away?

Lloyd Dykk, THE VANCOUVER SUN
