Louise Farrenc: Symphony No. 3

Our season opener is all about celebration! We bring you the crowning achievement of Louise Farrenc, one of France’s greatest 19th-century composers, to start our 40th Spotlight season with gusto. The expressive and spirited Cello Concerto in C Major, gifted by Haydn to a good friend, will be richly interpreted by Nova Scotia’s own Denise Djokic. Rounding out the program is Dinuk Wijeratne’s Yatra, a work we commissioned to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial, and a new composition especially for our 40th from Symphony Nova Scotia bassoonist L. Christopher Palmer.
