Thomas Yu with the SSO
Eric Paetkau, music director
Thomas Yu, piano
Maestro Eric Paetkau has created a special program that explores a cross-section of thrilling music. Stravinsky’s Pulcinella Suite is a special music treat to pair alongside the captivating rhythms of Vincent Ho’s Earthbeat.
Pianist Thomas Yu returns home to Saskatoon for a special concerto performance. Saint-Saën’s fifth piano concerto is lovingly called the Egyptian because of the exotic sounds created by the pianist, particularly in the second movement.
The Saskatoon Symphony Orchestra is thrilled to feature the music of Nicole Lizée on this concert. Nicole grew up in south-west Saskatchewan, and has gone on to be one of the greatest Canadian composers of her generation. Her music is bold and brave, and her Behind The Sound of Music takes us on a journey beyond the sounds of the Rogers and Hammerstein classic to somewhere entirely new and wonderful.
