Canada’s percussion group NEXUS presents “Tribute”, a mixed program on Saturday, March 20, 2010 at Glenn Gould Studio. It includes the world premiere of “R.E.member-ing” by NEXUS founding member William Cahn, and the Canadian premiere of “Handmade Proverbs” by Japanese composer Toru Takemitsu. The concert also includes performances of John Cage’s “Credo in US”, additional pieces by Takemitsu, as well as “Remembrance” and “Lullaby for Esmé” by NEXUS founding member Robin Engelman. The group will be joined by guest artists, pianist Midori Koga and percussionists Paul Ormandy and Ryan Scott. The programming for “Tribute” was inspired by the recent retirement of NEXUS founding member Robin Engelman. During his time with NEXUS Engelman introduced the group to John Cage’s “Credo in US” and conducted it a number of times. He was a close friend of Toru Takemitsu from the time they met when Engelman was principal percussion in the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, under Seiji Ozawa. Takemitsu invited NEXUS to tour in Japan several times, and composed their most successful concerto “From me flows what you call Time”. NEXUS performed the piece more than 80 times with orchestras all around the world. It will be Engelman’s arrangements of the pieces by Takemitsu that will be performed in this concert. The opening piece “Ancient Military Aires” is a collection of traditional military drum beatings. The performance of this is also a tribute to Engelman as the composer and percussionist has a great interest and expertise in this historical area. He has also composed many pieces in this style (for fife and drums). He brought a great zeal to NEXUS for learning more about the tradition from which NEXUS’ instruments and techniques originate. Robin Engelman’s arrangements of songs by Takemitsu may be heard on NEXUS’ most recent CD “Wings”. His piece “Lullaby for Esmé” is featured on the NEXUS CD “Lullaby”, and “Remembrance” is included on the NEXUS CD NEXUS Now. John Cage’s “Credo in US” will appear on NEXUS’ upcoming CD featuring percussion works of John Cage.
