About the concert
Samuel Milner, 2009 winner, Saskatchewan Concerto Competition, joins the orchestra to perform Bruch’s popular violin concerto, one of the most beautiful written for the instrument. Respighi’s Trittico Botticelliano, inspired by Boticelli’s paintings, transforms the artist’s work into bird song and dances. Then the symphony thrills with Mussorgsky’s musical virtual museum tour, Pictures at an Exhibition, the grandest of all orchestral showpieces.
