Piano Concerto

Mendelssohn

Symphony No. 3, Scottish

Approx. 100 Minute Performance

Fourteen-year-old Alma Deutscher wrote her first sonata at age six and her first short opera at the age of seven. Described by Sir Simon Rattle as “a force of nature” and by Anne-Sophie Mutter as “extraordinary,” Alma’s works have seen performances all over the world and received widespread critical acclaim. A virtuoso on both the piano and violin as well as a prolific composer, Alma plays on a violin made in 1683 by Antonio Stradivari (the Bucher Stradivarius.)

Mendelssohn was no slouch, playing his first concert at age nine. Canadian-born Stanley Dodds became the first member of the Berlin Philharmonic of Chinese descent. He now splits his duties between Principal Conductor of the Berlin Symphony Orchestra, and playing second fiddle with the Phil — literally!

Join us at 7:00pm for a very special prelude concert with North Vancouver District Honour Strings 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 February 28, 2020 and in North Vancouver on March 1, 2020.
