Residency Concert with Schwob School of Music faculty performers.

Canadian composer Brian Cherney (b.1942) studied composition with Samuel Dolin at the Royal Conservatory of Music in Toronto and with John Weinzweig at the University of Toronto and received graduate degrees from the University of Toronto in both composition (MMus’67) and musicology (PhD’74). Since 1972 he has been on the staff of the Schulich School of Music at McGill University in Montreal, where he teaches composition, twentieth-century analysis and twentieth-century music history.

Since 1974 alone, Cherney has written more than sixty pieces, which have been performed and broadcast throughout Canada and also in Europe, the United States, South America and Japan. He has received commissions from many organizations and performers over the years, including the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, La Société de musique contemporaine du Québec , the Esprit Orchestra, the 1990 New Music America Festival, Le Nouvel ensemble moderne , Amici , the Pierrot Ensemble, The Montreal Symphony Orchestra, L’Orchestre Symphonique de Québec, The Strings of the Future, Rivka Golani, Lawrence Cherney, Louis-Philippe Pelletier, Robert Aitken, Antonio Lysy, Vivienne Spiteri, Marc Couroux and Julie- Anne Derome.

In 1979 Cherney’s String Trio, a CBC commission, tied for first place among the “recommended” works at the International Rostrum of Composers in Paris. In 1985 he was awarded the Jules Léger Prize for New Chamber Music for River of Fire, a work for oboe d’amore and harp. His 1995 orchestral work, Et la solitude dérive au fil des fleuves… (1995), commissioned by the Montreal Symphony Orchestra, was premiered by that orchestra, under Charles Dutoit, on May 28 and 29, 1996, in Montreal. Another recent piece, Echoes in the Memory (1997), commissioned by the CBC for the Toronto group, Amici , was premiered by that group in Toronto on November 21, 1997. In July, 1998, a new work for flute and percussion, Entendre marcher un ange , was premiered by Andrée Martin and Paul Vaillancourt at the Sound Symposium in Newfoundland. On October 21, 1998, the Contemporary Chamber Players of SUNY at Stony Brook, New York, presented a concert which included five of Cherney’s pieces, dating from 1983 to 1998.

April 17

La Grange Symphony Orchestra Season Finale

"The opening work for this evening’s LaGrange Symphony Orchestra concert was the vaulted Cello Concerto in b minor of Antonin Dvorak. Cellist Wendy Warner appeared with Maestro Cobos and seated herself at the front of the stage, adjusting the endpin of her cello until it was just right. That it WAS just right was proven for the duration of the concerto, as measure by measure her playing was, at times, intemperate and brutish, followed by the most tender playing one could imagine being invoked from a musical instrument of only four strings and a bow. I could not detect one flaw in her performance. The fingerboard technique as Ms. Warner playfully pranced up and down in double stops of major sixths and octaves, was a pure delight. I caught myself smiling several times during this performance."
