Eric Paetkau, Music Director
Anastasia Rizikov, piano
Saskatoon Youth Orchestra, Richard Carnegie, conductor
Anastasia Rizikov is quickly making her name on the international stage – this young Canadian premieres her first performance of 2nd concerto of Saint-Saens. The work is a dramatic and passionate piece that wears its heart on its sleeve and shows off the virtuosity of this rising star.Joined by Saskatoon’s Youth Orchestra, the concert kicks off with Canadian Airat Ichmouratov’s new Youth Overture.chaikovsky’s Pathetique is considered to be one of the greatest orchestral works ever written – steeped in mystery the symphony embarks on new ideas and captures the composer at his most vulnerable.
