AtayoskewinComposer: Forsyth, Malcolm
Performance date: July 04, 1996

Date composed: 1984


Atayoskewin is one of Forsyth’s most frequently-played compositions, and for a good reason: it is a brilliantly scored, imaginative, highly enjoyable evocation of three aspects of the Albertan northland, music that could only have been written by a Canadian.

Performance date: November 07, 2001

Date composed: 1983

Sagittarius: Concerto Grosso for brass quintet and orchestraComposer: Forsyth, Malcolm
Performance date: October 05, 1976

Date composed: 1975


Compositions for a single soloist (piano, violin, cello, flute, etc.) and orchestra are common. Uncommon are concerted pieces for a group of soloists and orchestra. Forsyth’s Sagittarius is just such a work, featuring an entire brass quintet as the collective soloist. The composer called his piece Sagittarius “for the sporty, outdoor mood of the zodiacal sign.”
