Biography
The French work, The Shadows of Time by Henri Dutilleux commemorates the 50th anniversary of the end of WW ll and includes an episode alluding to the heroism of Anne Frank and the discovery of her diary. At the “heart” of the score are “three voices of a child” – singing alternately in solo and together.   

The piece involves solo voices of children from the Canadian Children’s Opera Company and is “dedicated to Anne Frank and all the children of the world, the innocents”. The Shadows of Time, a colourful garden of delicately cultivated sounds, comprises five orchestral episodes with evocative titles, a sensuousness of texture and emotional immediacy.
