Maestro Daniel Raiskin leads the orchestra through an eclectic musical evening showcasing the WSO’s strings, winds and brass sections.
The program begins with brass in the spotlight, and Giovanni Babrieli’s Canzon septimi No. 2, composed for the majestic St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, Italy. The program then moves to the winds and the Romantic era, with Felix Mendelssohn’s elegant and romantic Nocturno für Bläser, followed by soloists WSO associate concertmaster Karl Stobbe and violinist Jeremy Buzash performing Johann Sebastian Bach’s Double Violin Concerto, one of the prolific composer’s most famous works.
The evening culminates with a final ode to the 250th birthday of Ludwig van Beethoven, and his Grosse Fuge, arranged entirely for strings and in a rarely heard version of this powerful fugue.
Presented by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra
