Peter Eötvös, the acclaimed Hungarian composer who is curating the TSO's 2012 New Creations Festival, has chosen a fascinating range of pieces for the opening concert. Among them are a true Canadian classic: Lonely Child, Claude Vivier's haunting cantata for soprano. Eötvös's own composition, Seven, is a touching memorial for the astronauts who died aboard the space shuttle Columbia in 2003.
