Approx. 90 Minute Performance

A striking duo: young Chilean conductor Paolo Bortolameolli meets Israeli mandolinist Avi Avital in a concert of energetic works inspired by the magic of Italy. Beethoven’s 8th is perhaps his most experimental symphony, written in a style that harkens back to earlier composers while barely concealing a radical restructuring of the symphonic form. Likewise, Giovanni Sollima’s new Mandolin Concerto, written for Avital, mashes up musical styles from baroque to rock’n’roll to charming effect.

Join us at 7:00pm for a very special prelude concert with North Vancouver District Honour Winds on the Orpheum stage and then after the concert for a post-concert Q&A with the guest artists.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Musically Speaking series and is also playing in Surrey on May 8, 2020 and in North Vancouver on May 7, 2020.
