Event: Masterpieces by Beethoven & Ravel
Sat, Oct 29, 2016
German virtuoso pianist Leonie Rettig is “an extremely talented, wonderful player,” says Maestro Gueller, with an “overwhelming sonic aura” and a “golden sound” (Der Teckbote). Leonie makes her Canadian debut with Ravel’s breathtaking Piano Concerto in G, a fantastically colourful work famed for its brilliant melodies and heartbreaking slow movement. Then, the orchestra performs Beethoven’s Second Symphony, brimming with energy and temperament. ONE PERFORMANCE: Thursday October 29, 2015, 7:30 pm, Rebecca Cohn Auditorium.
