Explore well-known works and discover new treasures of the musical repertory in our Guided Listening sessions with JoAnna Cochenet.
In this session, we take a new work from a young, up-and-coming Iranian composer, Danial Sheibani (b. 2003). Currently based in Toronto, Sheibani already has a catalog that includes concert works and works for film, TV, podcast, and theatre. Composed for the 2023 Cascade Conducting Sinfonietta in Tacoma, Washington, the backdrop for Freedom Uncanny includes sensitive topics and is for a mature audience. We will discuss some important historical events and go through the score together. We are delighted to have our composer present for this session.
