Dominic Desautels, clarinet
New Work by Dr. Kelly-Marie Murphy, Maria Anna Mozart Prize Winner
Aaron Copland: Clarinet Concerto
Beethoven: Symphony No. 8
Symphony Nova Scotia’s own virtuoso clarinetist Dominic Desautels is a local celebrity, with his brilliant, enthusiastic playing and extraordinary technical prowess. Now, hear Dominic in his element with Symphony Nova Scotia’s first-ever performance of Copland’s Clarinet Concerto – a rhythmic, jazz-inspired gem originally written for legendary swing musician Benny Goodman. Plus, Symphony Nova Scotia performs a brand-new work from Canadian composer Kelly-Marie Murphy, alongside Beethoven’s witty and playful Eighth Symphony.
The Maria Anna Mozart Award
Thanks to the generosity of local music supporter Dr. Jane Gordon, Symphony Nova Scotia has launched this new $10,000 award to support the work of Canadian women composers. Our March 8 concert, held on International Women’s Day, will feature the world premiere of a new work by our inaugural prize winner, Dr. Kelly-Marie Murphy.
