SEASON PARTNER

Maison symphonique de Montréal

To mark the 150th anniversary of Canada’s Confederation, Matthew Ricketts’ new work celebrates an icon of this country, the train. The railway also plays a central role in The Railrodder (Gerald Potterton, NFB, 1965), starring Buster Keaton. And finally, virtuoso Leonidas Kovakos dazzles in Mendelssohn’s Concerto no. 2.

“Kavakos’ tone has the character of striking high-grade silver sinew, ever beautiful, graceful and unbreakable” – Los Angeles Time
