No composer was more deserving than Murray Adaskin to have his music open the NAC Orchestra’s inaugural concert on October 7, 1969. He wanted to provide something light-hearted, enjoyable and entertaining, as suggested by the work’s title. Quirky rhythms, piquant harmonies and a “bright ’n breezy” spirit contribute to helping Diversion for Orchestra live up to its name.
