Performance dates
Stéphane Tétreault, cello
Symphony Nova Scotia
On the program

Prokofiev: Classical Symphony
Samuel Barber: Cello Concerto
Samuel Barber: Adagio for Strings
Aaron Copland: Appalachian Spring (Suite)

Barber’s Cello Concerto is a fierce, theatrical showpiece, and one of the most demanding cello concertos ever written. Hear Symphony Nova Scotia perform this spectacular concerto with Canada’s own Stéphane Tétreault, a 24-year-old “name to watch” with “pure, lyrical, unadulterated playing of the highest order” (Gramophone). Then, be moved by Barber’s heart-wrenching Adagio for Strings, famed the world over from film scores, remixes, and solemn state funerals. And finally, enjoy Copland’s rich, radiant Appalachian Spring, “one of the most inspiring and symbolic works of the century” (NPR).
