Works by Bartók, Cerha, Sokolović and Stravinsky.
Alexis Hauser raises his baton to Sokolović! The McGill Symphony Orchestra surveys masterworks of the last two centuries with three large-scale orchestral works. In addition to Schubert’s Symphony no 5, Hauser will conduct Bartok’s historic second violin concerto as well as Sokolović’s Nine Proverbs, a work inspired by Breughel le Jeune. Listeners will oscillate between modernity and historicism, and from the light-hearted to the dramatic.
Production McGill Schulich School of Music
Founded in 1989, the critically acclaimed McGill Symphony Orchestra has performed in such prestigious venues as Toronto’s Roy Thomson Hall, Ottawa’s National Arts Centre, Montreal’s Place des Arts, and New York’s Lincoln Centre.
