Eric Paetkau, music director Stéphane Tétreault, cello
We kick off our 89th season with a night of big bold music. Opening the evening is a work by Saskatchewan composer Laura Pettigrew, whose music is vivid and colourful and cinematic in scope. Cellist Stéphane Tétreault made such a huge impression on us last season, that we literally couldn’t wait to have him back. This time he’ll be playing the richly romantic Dvorak Cello Concerto, which pairs perfectly with Brahms’ final symphony. We complete our exploration of the Brahms symphonies in this special opening night experience. Brahms’ 4th is bursting with autumnal colours, and showcases the orchestra and the composer at full strength.
