“...simply inspired...” — BBC Music Magazine on Kremer

JANUARY 31 & FEBRUARY 1, 2020

Gidon Kremer’s legendary combination of dazzling technique and painstaking musical insight will show us the brilliance of Schumann’s subtle and intimate Cello Concerto in this transcription for violin. Bruckner’s 4th and most popular Romantic symphony creates an almost Wagnerian world of delicate birdsong, medieval towns, and mounted knights bursting out into nature. David Gordon Duke describes Canadian composer/ conductor Samy Moussa as “a twentyfirst century Wagner.” You are about to discover why in this work that atmospherically sets the stage for the drama to come.

This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Gold series.
