An enchanting orchestral odyssey

Jessie Montgomery: Overture (Canadian premiere)
Claude Debussy: Nocturnes
Piotr Ilych Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto no. 1 in B minor

Guest artist: Alexander Panizza, piano

A soaring call of the horns, the piano’s dramatic entry, then the atmosphere becomes majestic for Tchaikovsky’s passionate journey. Debussy brings to life ethereal images of moonlit clouds, street festivities and a choir of sirens. The driving rhythms and lush harmonies of Jessie Montgomery’s dramatic overture reveal why she is one of the most compelling composers of our time.
