John Burge: Oscillations

Dr. John Burge has been a music professor at The Dan School of Drama and Music since 1987. He has composed a large body of instrumental and vocal music in all genres and in 2009 he won the Juno for Best Canadian Classical Composition for his work “Flanders Fields Reflections”. He was nominated a second time this past year for his piece “Piano Quartet”, which was commissioned and recorded by Ensemble Made In Canada.

In April, John premiered “Oscillations”, which was written in honour of Queen’s University colleague Dr. Arthur McDonald’s co-winning of the 2015 Nobel Prize in Physics. “Oscillations” is the final piece in the collection Piano Reflections and was recorded by Josh Lyon of AKAFLK Productions (audio by Memory Device) at The Isabel Bader Centre for the Performing Arts in February 2016.

Hit play and sit back and enjoy this mesmerizing piece. It’s 8:22 you won’t regret.
