Esteemed conductor emeritus of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra Peter Oundjian returns to conduct the NAC Orchestra in Southam for the first time in over two decades.
To hear Ottawa-born solo cellist Bryan Cheng perform is witness to the deep connection between a new generation of superb performers and the great composers of the last five centuries. At 18, Bryan was the 2016 recipient of the National Arts Centre Orchestra’s Bursary Competition. Now barely in his twenties, Bryan returns to the NAC, and a better vehicle for his extraordinary talent than the burning intensity of Edward Elgar’s Cello Concerto could hardly be found. Elgar’s concerto is a lament for a world changed by an apocalyptic war, and he composed the work at his cottage where, just a few years earlier, he could hear the sounds of artillery across the English Channel in France.
