The world renowned Gryphon Trio join the SSO for the first time in Beethoven’s playful and passionate Triple Concerto. Maestro Eric Paetkau leads the SSO through Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 9 – the composer himself remarked that musicians will love to play the work, and that has held true for the more than 70 years since it premiered. It was written behind the Red Curtain and while the work was to glorify the Soviet Union, it acts as respite and refreshment from the stresses of a troubled world. The evening opens with Through the Glass Darkly: an Elegy for Orchestra by Saskatchewan’s David McIntyre.
