Music has a way of transporting audiences and emoting feelings that can resonate with our souls in a deep, impactful way. Specifically, music has the power to define our history and culture for generations to come. Today’s performance features one of the greatest works ever written paired alongside new works and arrangements by leading Czech and Canadian composers. Based on seven Romanian tunes, Béla Bartók’s Romanian Folk Dances captures distinct sounds from Transylvania and other regions of Romania. The Arthur Willner transcription has no modification to the original piano score, but features a solo violin voice that high- light the original tunes that would have been played on fiddle or shepherd’s flute. Back by popular demand, international jazz veteran and multi Juno Award winner, Roberto Occhipinti, returns with select compositions and arrangements that bridge the gap between classical, jazz, and world music. Recognized as one of the world’s greatest violists, Steven Dann returns to perform Rebirth by Christos Hatzis. The work features a large orchestra and percussion section with bi-polar and at times violent mood swings inspired by tragic events of Tiananmen Square in Beijing in 1989. Despite its initial failure, Swan Lake stands amongst the most popular of ballets. Today’s performance features popular selections from the symphonic suite.
