Event Details

Orchestre symphonique de Montréal 

Kent Nagano, conductor
Charles Richard-Hamelin, piano

Event opening with the participation of Aboriginal musicians, drums, and symbolic exchanges (approx. 4 min.)
Barber, Adagio for strings (approx. 8 min.)
Gershwin, Rhapsody in Blue for piano and orchestra (approx. 16 min.)
Shostakovich, The Golden Age, op. 22 (excerpts) (approx. 15 min.)

Barber’s Adagio for strings and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue are among the most popular works in the American classical music repertoire. Quebec pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin is back with the OSM to perform the latter powerful, jazz-and-pop-inspired work. Composed during the same period, Shostakovich’s ballet The Golden Age tells the story of a Soviet sports team as it embarks on its first tour to the West. Culture Shock!
