THE SPORT OF MUSIC
Saturday, February 11, 2023 at 8 p.m.
Flato Markham Theatre
171 Town Centre Blvd, Markham
Artistic inspiration comes in many forms. The joy of sport is decidedly prevalent in the rhythmically rowdy Rugby by the avant-garde Swiss-French composer Honegger. At the request of his publisher, and in collaboration with a seasoned American violinist, Stravinsky penned his brightly bombastic neo-baroque Concerto for violin and orchestra. Motivated by the doctrine of Socialist Realism, Shostakovich withdrew the score of his enormously orchestrated Symphony No. 4, only to be performed 25 years after its creation.
7:10 p.m. Prélude: pre-concert recital.
7:20 p.m. Pre-concert talk.
Intermission discussion and Q&A with Emmanuelle Sievers and Michael Berec. Post-concert reception.
