Concert #8 June 20 - 26
From Sea To Rolling Hills / De La Mer À La Vallée
A Vancouver Islander’s recital / Un récital sur l’île de Vancouver/
Bruno Roy, Baritone & Kimberly Bartczak, Piano

Surrounded by the grandiosity of the ocean, valleys and wild woods of Vancouver Island, Bruno Roy and Kimberly Bartczak deliver a recital inspired by the music of Ravel and Fauré, two masters of the 20th century mélodie. Here we find the sights and sounds of ocean and port life juxtaposed with some of Fauré's final compositions. In the hills not far off from the ocean side we also find Don Quichotte, making his way home through the valley. Are we in France? Are we in Spain? Or are we simply where we need to be….?
