Notes and Editorial Reviews

Life Reflected is a stunningly original live experience: a celebration of youth, promise and courage, revealed in the compelling and diverse portraits of four exceptional Canadian women: Alice Munro, Amanda Todd, Roberta Bondar and Rita Joe. Alexander Shelley, Music Director of Canada’s National Arts Centre Orchestra, brought together four remarkable Canadian composers to collaborate with Creative Producer and Director, Donna Feore, and an ensemble of extraordinary performers to create this unique symphonic experience. Life Reflected’s four musical works immerse audiences within a 3D environment featuring photography, motion picture and graphic design, projected on screens surrounding the orchestra. This creative landscape and the Read more accompanying visuals were created and adapted by artistic partner, the innovative Montreal visual design company Normal. This recoding showcases the music from this multi-discipline, multi-media collaboration. The NAC Orchestra was formed at the creation of Canada’s National Arts Centre in 1969 and gives over 100 performances a year with world renowned artists. It is noted for the passion and clarity of its performances and recordings, its ground-breaking teaching and outreach programs, and nurturing of Canadian creativity. Read less
