Stunning. Epic. Unforgettable. Beethoven’s Seventh is one of the most popular symphonies of all time, and its influence marches on – its sombre second movement anchored the climactic moment of the 2010 Oscar-winning film The King’s Speech. Hear Symphony Nova Scotia perform this breathtaking masterpiece alongside Mozart’s delightful Marriage of Figaro Overture and Prokofiev’s colourful and demanding Concerto no. 2, featuring the virtuoso violin chops of Symphony Nova Scotia’s concertmaster, Renaud Lapierre.
The program opens with a Fanfare by Dinuk Wijeratne commissioned for the 150th anniversary of Confederation.
