NORDIC LANDSCAPES

NORDIC LANDSCAPES AND TCHAIKOVSKY’S VIOLIN CONCERTO

Maison symphonique de Montréal

Discover the beauty of Nordic landscapes through the works of Icelandic composer Jón Leifs and Finnish composers Uuno Klami and Sibelius. You will hear the latter’s final, seventh symphony, a true musical testament in which the composer’s full genius is contained in one single, grand movement. Also on the program will be Tchaikovsky’s renowned and virtuosic Violin Concerto, performed by Augustin Hadelich.

 

“Clear of beat, articulate of gesture, strong and vigorous of command, Storgards on the podium exuded the confidence of a thoughtful musician who knows exactly what he wants” – Chicago Tribune

“There are few conductors around who are more riveting and involving in performance than Storgårds” – Vancouver Classical Music
