Curio Box, the present release from Turning Point Ensemble, features a mix of compositions from neoclassical music (Hindemith) to Luciano Berio´s Folk Songs and Owen Underhill´s cello concerto. The release is inspired by the discovery of the Chinese Curio Boxes. The boxes open mysteriously, revealing multiple levels and small compartments containing precious objects such as miniature paintings, poems, and calligraphy. Just like the Curio Boxes, this release opens to reveal different levels of artistry, each more entrancing than the last. Founded in 2002 by it's musician members, the Turning Point Ensemble is a Canadian Vancouver-based large chamber ensemble that presents music crossing genres and time periods in innovative contexts and intersecting with multiple art forms including opera, dance, theater, visual art and moving image. The ensemble strives to link seminal twentieth century repertoire to contemporary works through thoughtful programming and unique modes of presentation.
