Maestro Tausk’s first Surrey Nights concert as Music Director kicks off in a unique way, with a focus entirely on the VSO’s brilliant brass section in two sacred works by the Baroque composer Gabrieli.
Magnificent violinist Baiba Skride then takes the stage for Gubaidulina’s mesmerizing Violin Concerto, before the concert concludes with Tchaikovsky’s fateful final symphony.
This concert is also playing in North Vancouver at the Centennial Theatre (Thursday, Nov 29) and at the Orpheum Theatre in Vancouver (Saturday, Dec 1.)
The Surrey Nights Series is endowed by a generous gift from WERNER AND HELGA HÖING.
