Encount3rs / Shelley, Canda's National Arts Centre Orchestra
Encount3rs is an unprecedented project, event and recording which has resulted in remarkable new one-act ballets and original orchestral scores. This new album consists of the music from this landmark NAC commission which pairs three of Canada’s outstanding choreographic talents with three of the country’s most exciting composers. Alberta Ballet’s eminent and prolific Jean Grand-Maître joined forces with multiple award-winning new music visionary Andrew Staniland; Ballet BC’s trail-blazing Emily Molnar met her musical match with innovative composer Nicole Lizee; and Guillaume Côte, gifted dancer and choreographic associate with the National Ballet of Canada, was perfectly paired with noted emerging composer Kevin Lau.
