Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg has remained the classical world's most electrifying performer since she burst forth like a comet on to the music scene nearly twenty-five years ago. Her fearless interpretations and powerful, no-holds-barred playing makes her a perfect match for Shostakovich's exciting Violin Concerto No. 1.
Joyce Yang has grown into one of her generation's top pianists right before our very eyes. She performs Rachmaninoff's wildly-popular Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, and the orchestra plays a suite from Der Rosenkavalier (the Knight of the Rose) and Ravel's intense, Romantic La Valse.
Acclaimed as a leading interpreter of Beethoven's music, pianist John Lill performs his stormy, Romantic Piano Concerto No. 4. A profound and highly personal musical statement, Elgar's beautiful and intense Symphony No. 2 is described as "the passionate pilgrimage of the soul."
Johann Christian Bach was the eleventh and youngest son of the great Baroque master Johann Sebastian Bach. The youngest Bach, though overshadowed by his father and older brother, was a strong contributor to the development of the Classical style – and in fact, was one of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's early teachers. A perfect Bach & Beyond concert, this program features Mozart's greatest symphony, and sensational pianist Benedetto Lupo.
Violinist, mathematician, and pianist, Vancouver-born Corey Cerovsek makes his welcome return to perform Korngold's Violin Concerto. Debussy's beautiful, impressionist Prelude to the afternoon of a fawn, and Berlioz's Romantic, opium-inspired ode to unrequited love round out what is sure to be a truly fantastic concert.
No one beats Tchaikovsky for sheer musical thrills, and his Piano Concerto No. 1 is perhaps the most thrilling work of all. Sensational pianist Freddy Kempf is up to the challenge, and his performance of this amazing concerto will blow you away. And Beethoven's 'Pastoral' Symphony No. 6 is, simply put, one of the most beautiful symphonies ever written.
