Marc-André Hamelin, piano
Brahms: Piano Concerto No. 1
Brahms: Symphony No. 1
Maestro Gueller’s final Festival launches with two of the greatest classical works ever written – and one of the world’s major superstar pianists. Experience Brahms’ magnificent First Piano Concerto with the one and only Marc-André Hamelin, a “paragon of virtuosic refinement” (Boston Globe), and “a titanic interpreter of late Romantic and 20th-century showstoppers” (Ottawa Citizen). Then, Maestro Gueller conducts Symphony Nova Scotia’s expanded orchestra in Brahms’ brilliant First Symphony, a crowning achievement that – like Maestro Gueller himself – celebrates the glories of the past, while looking forward to a bright, triumphant future.
"Marc-André Hamelin ranks among the small handful of performers in every generation whose abilities defy the imagination."Toronto Star
