- Hans Abrahamsen: Horn Concerto (Canadian Première)
- Dvořák: Symphony No. 9 “From the New World”
A convergence of old and new worlds inspired something truly special in Dvořák’s soul-stirring “New World” Symphony. You’ll also hear Martinů’s evocative The Rock, mid-20th century music similarly inspired by the opportunity of a “new world”. A World Première from Toronto-based composer Luis Ramirez opens the concert, and Berlin Philharmonic Principal Horn Stefan Dohr gives the Canadian Première of Abrahamsen’s Horn Concerto, which was written especially for him.
