WSO in Brandon
Kerry DuWors Plays Beethoven
Sep 17, 2017 at the Western Manitoba Centennial Auditorium
Leave it to Beethoven to be the master contrarian when he felt it was necessary. Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, overflows with radiant happiness where inner reflection and virtuosity are sublimely managed in perfect balance to elevate as well as thrill. Much different from the standard practice of 19th-century “virtuoso” concertos of the time! Hear this masterpiece and you are forever changed, as Brandon’s own Kerry DuWors will prove.
Tchaikovsky felt his Fourth Symphony was his greatest achievement at the time and an uplift to his turbulent mental state. It’s a story about fate’s ever-presence, from stark reality through thankfulness, the joys of life and the happiness of others in a story brilliantly told.
