“...a revelation... lavishly creamy voice capable of expressing all the emotions.” — Financial Times on Pieczonka
SEPTEMBER 20 & 21, 2019
The VSO’s 101st Season opens with Canadian international diva Adrianne Pieczonka singing Schubert’s orchestrated lieder including Der Erlkönig (The Elf King) paired with Mahler’s Symphony No. 1 Titan — the Symphony that “changed the genre forever” (The Guardian). Maestro Tausk starts with a new work commissioned from Juno-nominated Bekah Simms, a fresh and brilliant Canadian talent, to open the season.
This concert is part of the 2019-2020 Masterworks Gold series.
