The 10th A·DEvantgarde Festival opened with a concert dedicated to Canadian New Music. The theme of the 2009 festival is Spielend, meaning playing with ease. With this theme in mind, works from Canadian composers were commissioned including new works from BC composers Rodney Sharman and Jeffrey Ryan, Quebec composer Michel Gonneville and Ontario composer Paul Frehner.

“…it is vital, angular music, which the superb Canadian ensemble Aventa, under the direction of Bill Linwood, implemented with precision” – Sueddeutsche, München
