New Commissions


Supporting the creation of new works.

Each Season, we invest in the creation of new Canadian works through the support of the DeBoni New Works program.

This Season’s Bergmann + Beethoven concert opens with a new work by Canadian composer Kelly-Marie Murphy commissioned for our 2020: Year of Beethoven series. On Rethinking Heroism in the 21st Century explores what it means to be a hero, and how it compares to the idea of heroism during Beethoven’s time. This piece debuted at the Calgary Phil’s Beethoven 3: Eroica concert in March 2020. You can read more Murphy’s inspiration for the composition in her post from 2020 celebrating its world premiere.
