David Fray makes his highly-anticipated debut on the NAC stage. The pianist is making waves for his ability to contrast explosive, muscular moments on the keyboard with sweet and fading sentimentality. Chopin’s Concerto No. 2 serves as the perfect introduction to Fray’s polished finesse and panache: Chopin composed it as a piece intended to showcase his talents wherever he went as a traveling virtuoso.
The evening begins with Yosuke Kawasaki and Jessica Linnebach, our NAC Orchestra concertmaster and associate concertmaster, playing a piece by the exciting Canadian composer Jocelyn Morlock. Join the couple as they celebrate Valentine’s Day with you!
With Schumann’s “Spring” Symphony, you’ll be swept away by a breath of fresh air.
Robert Schumann’s 1st Symphony was inspired by a poem about Spring and love. Newlywed at the time and in a state of exuberant joy, Schumann created for the musicians the sensation of living within the emergence of spring when playing his symphony. The first trumpet call is a like a summons to awaken and the notes dance through the movements like a time lapse of nature coming back to life.
Be a part of history: the Schumann Symphony is part of an NAC Orchestra recording project, and both concerts will be recorded live for commercial release.
