Artist: Michael Bridge

Song: Mosafer [composer: Nastaran Pouladzadeh]

Recorded at the Canadian Music Centre, January 24, 2018.

Michael Bridge - Mosafer

This intriguing collaboration saw local accordionist Michael Bridge tackle a series of new pieces pulled together from a worldwide call for scores made by the Iranian-Canadian Composers of Toronto. Besides pieces from Spain, Cyprus, Brazil and Mexico, a couple local composers were also represented, including a revised solo version of a piece for accordion and string quartet by Pouya Hamidi plus this electroacoustic work (based on a poem by Sohrab Sepehri) by Nastaran Pouladzadeh. Bridge is earning a reputation as a virtuoso on his instrument, and these works, filled with extended techniques, gave him a chance to show that off.
