Sponsored by

It’s the world’s best-loved cello concerto – “THE cello concerto,” says Maestro Gueller – and one of the most powerful works for cello ever written. Don’t miss this opportunity to hear Dvořák’s beautiful Cello Concerto, performed by Colombian cello sensation Santiago Cañón Valencia with his “simply tremendous playing” (The Strad). Plus, hear our expanded orchestra take on two virtuosic, romantic showpieces by Enescu and Kodaly in their first-ever Symphony Nova Scotia performances.

Please note: Liszt’s Les Preludes will be performed instead of Kodaly’s  Háry János.

Hear from Bernhard Gueller about this year’s Festival.
