U of T librarian James Mason discovers long lost Norwegian concerto
After speaking with The Toronto Star and CBC, James Mason is getting tired of interviews. Mason, a librarian at the University of Toronto's Music Faculty Library, discovered a long-lost concerto written by the Norwegian conductor and composer Johan Halvorsen. Mason described to The Varsity that 'lost' isn't the operative word. "The official story is that after it was premiered, Halvorsen wasn't too happy with the critical results and reviews," Mason explained. Mason and his colleagues Suzanna Meyers Sawa and Houman Behzadi?managed to find the concerto while working on a project to digitize Parlow's archival collection. Mason is optimistic that the piece could also be performed within Canada in the near future. "We also feel like we have ownership over this too," says Mason. "I think it would be really nice if we had a premiere here. Personally I feel it would be great if the University of Toronto orchestrated it. The Toronto Symphony would also be great, or even a soloist from Calgary would be great." As for speaking to the media, Mason says, "I think I'll be happy to get back to my job.
