Titre de l'événement: Edmonton Symphony Orchestra - Beethoven's Fourth Piano Concerto

Description:

A master pianist joins the ESO to perform Beethoven’s gentlest concerto, in startling contrast to Nielsen’s incisive symphony. Masterworks like these require palate cleansers: the brief, reflective works of Sibelius and Morawetz complete the menu.

Description:

Luri Lee, winner of the 2013 Shean Strings Competition, joins the ESO for Tchaikovsky’s much-loved concerto, and Brahms’ powerful variations are always a treat to hear.

Étiquettes:

Titre de l'événement: Edmonton Symphony Orchestra - Rachmaninoff’s Third Piano Concerto

Étiquettes:

Description:

John Estacio’s Bootlegger’s Tarantella, with its infections melodies and sonorities, has become a
popular ESO “party piece”. Rutter’s inventive suite careens from neo-baroque to jazz, while Grieg’s
suite will make you want to hum along. And no one should miss the opportunity to hear Pavel
Kolesnikov (2012 Honens Prize Laureate) conquer the Mount Everest of piano concerti.

Description:

Beethoven thought his Seventh Symphony one of his finest works; the musicians who performed its
premiere thought he must have been drunk when he composed it. Listen and judge for yourself, and
welcome back the concertmaster of the Montreal Symphony to his hometown to perform an arresting
concerto.

Titre de l'événement: Edmonton Symphony Orchestra - Gabrieli, Vivaldi & Haydn

Étiquettes:

Description:

Vivaldi’s unique quadruple concerto will feature four of the ESO’s finest! Brandon Ridenour, the youngest-ever member of the Canadian Brass, will perform a scintillating fantasy and two operatic arias on solo trumpet instead of solo voice. And nothing rounds out an Early Music concert like brassy works by Gabrieli and a Haydn symphony.
