You are invited to attend a Prelude presentation before the Friday, March 8th and Saturday, March 9th evening concerts, starting at 6:45 PM in the Upper Circle Lobby (3rd Floor). This talk by Natalie Boisvert is a fantastic way to learn more about the pieces being performed in your concert.
The warmth of Brahms’ third symphony has made it a favourite of many concertgoers. His friend Clara Schumann wrote: “Each movement is a jewel! I could not tell you which I loved most.” A century earlier, Carl Philip Emanuel Bach composed his emotional and imaginative flute concerto – complete with stormy, calm, angry, and joyous moods, with its dazzling melodies requiring breath-defying skills. Finnish composer Lotta Wennäkoski’s overture is an exciting exploration of musical buoyancy, rising and falling both in volume and intensity.
