Angela Cheng Plays Clara Schumann

Conducted by Fawzi Haimor
April 20 & 21 7:30 PM / 2:00 PM

You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Saturday, April 20th evening concert, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by musicologist D.T. Baker is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.

Tchaikovsky’s joyful Symphony No. 2 is filled with his favourite folk tunes and bursting with youthful optimism. Clara Schumann wrote her glittering Piano Concerto when she was just 14 years old, and it is brimming with innocence and fun. Mason Bates’ pulsating Mothership was launched a decade ago by the YouTube Symphony Orchestra featuring young musicians from around the world.
