National Arts Centre Orchestra with Jan Lisiecki
Oct 19, 2017 at the Centennial Concert Hall
The National Arts Centre Orchestra, led by Music Director Alexander Shelley, features the internationally renowned pianist Jan Lisiecki, who The New York Times has called “a pianist who makes every note count.” The concert is presented by the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra and is part of the NAC Orchestra’s nation-wide Canada 150 Tour.
Calgary-based pianist, Jan Lisiecki, will dazzle audiences with the Schumann piano concerto followed by the “New World Symphony” – a classic favourite. The evening culminates with John Estacio’s new work I Lost My Talk, inspired by Mi’kmaw Elder and poet Rita Joe, C.M. This lush musical score is performed with film and live narration, a truly “powerful, overwhelming creation” (Christophe Husse, Le Devoir).
The Canada 150 Tour is made possible with leadership support from Tour Patrons Gail and David O’Brien, Presenting Supporters Alice and Grant Burton, Supporting Partners Peng Lin and Yu Gu, Education Partner Dasha Shenkman, OBE, Hon RCM and Digital Partner Facebook.
