Since his National Arts Centre debut at the age of 12, Stewart Goodyear has been acclaimed as one of the finest pianists of his generation – but most people don’t know he is also a gifted composer. In tonight’s concert, the NAC Orchestra’s principal cellist Rachel Mercer performs Goodyear’s Cello Concerto, composed especially for her.
The symphonic score for Aaron Copland’s exuberant “cowboy ballet” Rodeo will lasso your heart, conjuring the freedom and beauty of a bygone era of horses, country dances, and wide-open spaces. Just try to sit still through “Hoedown,” a foot-tapping, galloping ode to the best of the west!
The evening opens with Samuel Barber’s Adagio for Strings, a work of surpassing beauty and passion and one of the most quietly moving pieces of music ever written.
