Chopin Concerto No. 2
7:30PM, Saturday, September 17, 2016
Eric Paetkau, Music Director
Charles Richard-Hamelin, piano
An opening night of epic proportions. At the 2015 edition of the International Chopin Competition, Charles Richard Hamelin became the first Canadian to be named a Laureate at the famed competition. Since then, he has skyrocketed to stardom and now he brings his masterful and award-winning Chopin to the SSO.
In our 86th season, we celebrate the work of Canadian composers like Andrew Staniland, whose work Voyageur is the perfect fanfare to an exceptional season.
Maestro Eric Paetkau will lead the SSO musicians through Beethoven’s seventh symphony, which audiences fell in love with all over again in the movie The King’s Speech.
