Concert: Bronfman’s Beethoven

National Arts Centre

The NAC Orchestra welcomes international phenomenon and Ottawa favourite Yefim Bronfman back to the stage to perform Beethoven’s exquisite 4th piano concerto.

John Storgårds conducts this evening’s program, which concludes with Vaughan Williams’s poignant and reflective Symphony No. 5. Ralph Vaughan Williams, who was an unapologetic admirer of Finland's Jean Sibelius, dedicated his 5th symphony to Jean Sibelius “without permission and with the sincerest flattery.” He composed the work as the Second World War raged around him, perhaps as a way of escaping to the peaceful and idyllic England of his memories.

PROGRAM:
Schubert Symphony No. 9, “Great”
J.S. Bach - Stokowski “Preludio” from Partita No. 3 in E major
Berg Violin Concerto

Performances February 7 and 8 at 8 pm.


2/7/2019 8:00 PM - 2/8/2019 10:00 PM
