In a deeply emotional program, the National Arts Centre Orchestra and Canadian baritone Joshua Hopkins perform a personal and powerful song cycle—composed by Jake Heggie based on original poetry by Margaret Atwood—that conveys the tragedy of lives needlessly lost. Bookending the concert are a new concerto grosso by Odawa First Nation composer Barbara Assiginaak and Brahms’s furiously passionate Symphony No. 4, which evokes the sounds of the entire universe from start to finish.
