Event Description

The Music Gallery presents

Emergents II: Bakarlari

Part of the Emergents Series

Curated by Sarah Constant

Doors 7:30pm / Show 8pm

In this concert, Montreal-based soloists collective Bakarlari plays in Toronto for the first time. 

Active across Canada and internationally as improvisers and performers of experimental music, the members of Bakarlari—trumpeter Émilie Fortin, tubist Michael Mansourati, and clarinetist Charlotte Layec—have come together with a focus on new solo music: performances of rarely-heard pieces for their instruments, the development of new single-instrument projects, and the creation of concerts that bring together their three distinct sonic vocabularies.

At the Music Gallery, Bakarlari will present their latest project, pairing contemporary solo works for trumpet, tuba, and clarinet with new pieces developed with early-career and Toronto-based composers. Between them, the collective will play solo compositions by Olga Neuwirth, Cort Lippe, and Elliott Carter alongside new collaborations with composers Alexandre David, Quinn Jacobs, and Olivia Shortt—as well as a first-ever ensemble appearance for the premiere of a new trio by Toronto/Hamilton-based composer Christina Volpini.
