The Elixir Ensemble is pleased to offer a new season of wonderful chamber music repertoire for piano and strings. What draws us to play this music? Without a doubt, it is the variety of emotion one can experience and recognize as uniquely human in all its richness. Whether French, German, Viennese or Canadian, we can always recognize ourselves in the creations of great composers – our bodies feel the rhythms of their bodies, their accelerating heartbeats, or their relaxed recollection of tender moments. We can feel the visceral energy of love’s excitement, or imagine the movements of wind and water, experiencing vicariously all the sensual delights that are reflected in these creations. As performers we use our own bodies and minds to translate this cornucopia of thought and emotion to our audiences – truly magical!
Come join us for these exciting concerts and enjoy the the wonderful acoustics of Emmanuel Anglican Church in Saskatoon, our new venue for our Sunday afternoon series. We look forward to seeing you!
