Winter Fire - Master Series 4

Pinchas Zukerman - Director/Violin
Amanda Forsyth - Cello
Benjamin Northey - Conductor

Elgar - Chanson de matin
Elgar - Chanson de nuit
Avner Dorman - Double Concerto*
Tchaikovsky - Symphony No.5

They’re back! Pinchas Zukerman and Amanda Forsyth clearly love Adelaide as much as Adelaide loves them – this time they’re bringing a specially-composed double concerto written to celebrate Zukerman’s 70th Birthday to share with us in a world premiere. Expect a dynamic piece perfectly suited to the expressive personalities of the duo, because Avner Dorman (originally from Israel, like Zukerman) makes a point of composing music for people, not just instruments!

 

Two soulful songs-without-words from Elgar open the concert, and to complete the evening, Zukerman conducts Tchaikovsky’s triumphant Fifth Symphony. Lean in for the hushed tones of the beginning – this is a tale of fate and passion, told with fervour by a master storyteller. The blazing finale makes it perfect music for a winter’s night.


*World Premiere, co-commissioned by the ASO, Boston Symphony Orchestra and National Arts Centre, Ottawa
