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.

Programme

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.

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
