Brahms: Violin Concerto in D
Symphony Nova Scotia concertmaster Robert Uchida takes on Brahms’ fiery Violin Concerto, one of the most challenging concertos ever written for violin.
We’ll also hear a brand new work by acclaimed Nova Scotia composer Derek Charke, who uses the theme of climate change and power consumption in Nova Scotia to create an innovative, acoustic-electronic soundscape. This work has been generously commissioned by the Canada Council for the Arts' Commissioning of Canadian Compositions program.
