The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra Masterworks Diamond series presents: Mozart & Tchaikovsky with Marc-André Hamelin
Acclaimed conductor Xian Zhang marks her first VSO performances conducting Tchaikovsky’s Second Symphony, a work infused with beautiful Ukrainian folk songs, and giving the composer one of his earliest critical successes. Iconic Canadian pianist Marc-André Hamelin performs one of Mozart’s finest concertos – a concerto that perhaps should be called the “Starling” concerto, for the famous (and actually true!) story of Mozart’s pet bird that could sing the principal theme of this concerto’s finale.
This concert features one of the greatest pianists of our time Yefim Bronfman, returning to Vancouver to perform Johannes Brahms.DEC 6-8
