The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra, led by William Rowson, will give the Canadian premiere of Helen Grime's brilliant sinfonietta work, A Cold Spring, on 14 April 2018 in a concert entitled "Crepuscular, Luminous."

A Cold Spring has enjoyed many performances since the Birmingham Contemporary Music Group's premiere of her bracing piece for ten players almost a decade ago, notably by the London Sinfonietta at the BBC Proms and by members of the New World Symphony in its US premiere.

A concerto for orchestra in miniature, solos and duos in its active outer movement enclose a lullaby featuring the horn in the central movement.

Helen Grime (b. 1981) grew up in Scotland and studied at the Royal College of Music in London and at Tanglewood Music Center. Between 2011 and 2015 she was Associate Composer to the Hallé Orchestra and is currently Composer-in-Residence at London's Wigmore Hall.
