Marquis Classics releases new Sinfonia Toronto CD

A new CD by Sinfonia Toronto has just been released by Marquis Classics. "Flanders Fields Reflections" is conducted by the orchestra's Music Director Nurhan Arman and dedicated to string compositions by Canadian composer John Burge. Works on the CD include One Sail, which features the renowned Canadian cellist Shauna Rolston.

Maestro Arman expressed delight with the release. "John's wonderful music for strings has been in our repertoire for a number of years. We had already performed the Toronto premieres of his Upper Canada Fiddle Suite and One Sail, and also the world premiere of Flanders Fields Reflections, which was a Sinfonia Toronto commission and the first orchestral work ever composed about the famous Canadian poem. Recording these works was a real labour of love for us, and we are delighted that now people across Canada will be able to listen to these remarkable compositions. We have a strong commitment to performing Canadian music and other contemporary compositions from around the world, and it's a great privilege to help pieces as beautiful as these become better known."

The Flanders Fields CD is now available online on the Sinfonia Toronto website, and will also be available in retail stores and directly from Marquis Classics
