Listen to excerpts from Où allons-nous?:
Who’s playing? Jonathan Crow, violin + Ensemble Contemporain de Montreal, conducted by Véronique Lacroix
Où allons-nous?, a concerto for violin and chamber orchestra, was commissioned by Véronique Lacroix for violinist Jonathan Crow and the Ensemble Contemporain de Montréal in 2008. It was premiered on an evening entitled “Les Marquises”, the name both a reference to the French Polynesian islands that became the home of Paul Gauguin, and a nod to the program of the evening, which featured four prominent women. Framed by fragments of Charles Ives’s enigmatic work, The Unanswered Question, each composer took as her impetus one of the three questions in the title of Gauguin’s masterpiece, D’où venons-nous? Que sommes-nous? Où allons-nous?
