WSO Saturday Classics Presents: Appalachian Spring & Brahms Double Concerto

Making his debut performance with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, national and international guest conductor Daniel Bartholomew-Poyser takes the orchestra and audiences on an exciting symphonic ride. The adventure features Haydn’s “tempesta de mare”, or “storm at sea,” and Aaron Copland’s poignant, spiritual and joyful masterpiece, Suite from Appalachian Spring.

For this concert, WSO’s concertmaster, Gwen Hoebig and principal cellist Yuri Hooker will be the featured soloists in Johannes Brahms’ gorgeous Concerto for Violin, Violoncello and Orchestra, where the composer has created an exquisite interplay between violin and cello. As colleagues for many years, who know each other’s style so well, Gwen and Yuri are an ideal pair for this performance.

This exciting concert starts with Dinuk Wijeratne’s dynamic and energetic Polyphonic Lively.

Saturday, November 4 at 7:30 pm
