Kindred Spirits Orchestra - Brahms and Sibelius

Saturday, May 20, 2017

8:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.

Location: FLATO Markham Theatre
171 Town Centre Boulevard  map

Join Maestro Kristian Alexander as he leads the KSO through an impassioned journey of musical delight. Brahms’ Tragic Overture is a fitting title to a dark and heart-rending score that “weeps”, as its composer described. Twenty years is well worth the wait for Brahms to write a second piano concerto; Younggun Kim returns to the KSO to masterfully interpret this extensive and novel work, composed at the height of the composer’s career. Commissioned to commemorate Sibelius’ 50th birthday, his Symphony No. 5 was revised numerous times after its premiere that resulted in an idiosyncratic work of epic proportions.
