To mark the 100th anniversary of the end of the First World War, the SSO is exploring the music of soldier composers and two great works written in response to the war.
Each movement of Ravel’s timless Le tombeau de Couperin is dedicated to a friend he lost in war, many of whom were friends and collaborators before the war began. Canadian John Burge captures the enduring poetry of Dr. John McCrae’s In Flanders Field in a moving piece for string orchestra.
Renowned cellist Stéphane Tétreault makes his first Saskatchewan performance with Elgar’s passionate Cello Concerto. The piece has become somewhat of a calling card for the young Quebec cellist who’s won acclaim for his performances of it around the globe.
