Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra: Bartók’s Farewell
February 21, 2020
February 22, 2020
Composed near the end of his life, Béla Bartók’s Third Piano Concerto was dedicated to his wife Ditta’s talents as an outstanding pianist.
We welcome soloist Zoltán Fejérvari – First-Prize winner of the 2017 Montreal International Musical Competition – to perform this touching work.
Renowned Swiss conductor Matthias Bamert is a prolific recording artist and a special friend to our orchestra from past acclaimed appearances. Inspired by the symphonic structures of Beethoven’s music and thematic reoccurrences in Wagner’s, Franck’s Symphony in D Minor overflows with melody and passion.
