Concert Information

Performance dates
Kinan Azmeh, clarinet
Symphony Nova Scotia
On the program

György Ligeti: Concert Românesc
Dinuk Wijeratne: Clarinet Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 7

Symphony Nova Scotia’s own Dinuk Wijeratne is a JUNO-winning dynamo. He’s “exuberantly creative” (New York Times). “Internationally respected for his virtuosity and sensitivity” (CBC). “An artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future” (Toronto Star). Now, Symphony Nova Scotia proudly presents Dinuk’s newest work – the middle-Eastern-influenced Clarinet Concerto, written specifically for Dinuk’s close friend and longtime collaborator, the Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh. Plus, we perform Ligeti’s Concert Românesc, made famous from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and finally, Beethoven’s stunning Symphony No. 7 – a beautiful, unforgettable masterpiece, and one of the most popular symphonies of all time.

This concert will also be performed at the Rebecca Cohn Auditorium in Halifax and at St. John’s Anglican Church in Lunenburg

* Commissioned by Symphony Nova Scotia
