The Génération2016 program consists of four premieres by prizewinning ‘emerging’ Canadian composers: With a mandate to encourage and support young musical creativity, the ECM+ has created Generation, a project that offers young composers a platform and a tool for professional and musical education. The only project of its kind in Canada, Generation discovers the next generation’s composers and provides them with a unique environment for musical research and exploration involving live experimentation with musicians.

Crossing Canada from West to East for the 9th time since 2000, the ECM+’s Génération2016 Canadian tour, conducted by Véronique Lacroix and hosted by Gabriel Dharmoo, presents a new edition of this legendary project.
