On the program

Kelly-Marie Murphy: Dragon, Unfolding*
Sibelius: Pelléas and Mélisande
Sibelius: Kuolema Suite (Valse Triste / Scene with Cranes)
Beethoven: Triple Concerto

It’s a concerto like no other, a triple-barrelled feast, and a spirited testament to Beethoven’s incomparable craft. For the first time ever, Symphony Nova Scotia presents Beethoven’s ingenious Triple Concerto, featuring not one, not two, but three solo performers — our own expert violinist Mark Lee, alongside acclaimed brother-sister duo Bryan and Silvie Cheng, praised for their “prodigious virtuosity and impassioned expressivity” (WholeNote). Plus, hear an energetic encore from Canadian composer Kelly-Marie Murphy, and masterpieces from Sibelius, including his haunting Valse Triste (“The Waltz of Death”), famed in film scores and concert halls alike.

* Commissioned by Symphony Nova Scotia
