Ensemble Chorum to perform works by Bhagwati and Dharmoo
Emsemble Chorum will perform works by Sandeep Bhagwati and Gabriel Dharmoo this Thursday, June 3 @ 8PM at the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal.
Sandeep Bhagwati’s Sangit Sambhav (The Origin of Music) stemmed from a creative collaboration with Ashok Renade, an Indian ethnomusicologist. Renade had sent Bhagwati a mixtape of popular and ritual music of India and asked if he could set it for western orchestra.
Gabriel Dharmoo will perform his new composition Moondraal Moondru (for chamber orchestra) with Ensemble Chorum. Dharmoo will also sing and play on the cello various musical works learnt in India during his carnatic music studies in 2008.
