McGill Symphony Orchestra plays Koerner Hall

November 17, 2015 @ 8:00 pm

McGill Symphony Orchestra,
Alexis Hauser, conductor
Axel Strauss, violin
Matt Haimovitz, cello

“The McGill Symphony Orchestra and I are thrilled to be performing in Toronto and we have crafted a program that highlights the orchestra’s extraordinary versatility.”
Maestro Alexis Hauser
The program will begin with Over Time by John Rea, one of Canada’s leading composers and an award-winning composition professor at McGill. It is described by Maestro Hauser as “an amazing, architecturally structured piece with simultaneous different speeds and a vast spectrum of orchestral colours.”Concert repertoire includes the Brahms Double Concerto for Violin, Cello and Orchestra with soloists from the school’s string faculty, Axel Strauss, violin, and Matt Haimovitz, cello. The concerto is the composer’s last large orchestral work, and “sums up a lifetime of experience and symphonic depth,” according to Maestro Hauser. A crowd-pleaser closes the concert: Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, an emotionally versatile and virtuosic showpiece with four stylistically divergent movements.
This concert also celebrates the 10th anniversary of the naming of the Schulich School of Music, and is presented in partnership with the McGill Allumni Association.
Program:
John Rea: Over Time
Johannes Brahms: Double Concerto in A Minor, Op. 102, for Violin, Cello and Orchestra
Dmitri Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5, in D Minor, Op. 47
