The Majesty of Bruckner
Symphony No. 4, Romantic
Approx. 60 Minute Performance
Get a jump on the weekend with the new series VSO AFTERWORK. Join us for happy hour in the Orpheum at 5:30, a short format, no intermission concert hosted and introduced by the conductor in a casual atmosphere at 6:30, and then a mix and mingle with VSO musicians after the performance. You’ll still have time for dinner after the show!
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.”
Featuring pre-and-post concert performances by Juno-nominated pianist John Stetch, lauded as “Like hearing a Matisse painting come to life” with “playful technique and unfettered imagination.”
This concert is part of the 2019-2020 VSO Afterwork series.
