Event Notes


Denise Djokic Plays Haydn Featuring: Holly Mathieson, conductor Denise Djokic, cello Dinuk Wijeratne: Yatra Franz Joseph Haydn: Cello Concerto in C Major L. Christopher Palmer: 40th Anniversary Commission Louise Farrenc: Symphony No. 3

We bring you the crowning achievement of Louise Farrenc, one of France’s greatest 19th-century composers, to start Symphony Nova Scotia’s 40th Spotlight season with gusto. The expressive and spirited Cello Concerto in C Major, gifted by Haydn to a good friend, will be richly interpreted by Nova Scotia’s own Denise Djokic. Rounding out the program is Dinuk Wijeratne’s Yatra, a work we commissioned to celebrate Canada’s sesquicentennial, and a new composition especially for our 40th from Symphony Nova Scotia bassoonist Christopher Palmer.
