Why See National Symphony Orchestra - Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony?

Fabian Gabel Conducts Alban Gerhardt

Quebec Symphony Orchestra music director Fabian Gabel leads the NSO in a program of works inspired by art, literature and theatre. The four works of Dukas, Bloch, Rachmaninoff and Shostakovich draw their origins from the tragedy of a love poem, the search for the Jewish identity and the trenches of World War II, eliciting impassioned musical responses that range from melancholic to joyous.

Award-winning German cellist Alban Gerhardt will join the ensemble to flex his bow during Erenst Bloch's Schelomo, a rhapsody of jewish-inspired melody and harmony. A performer of great nuance and technical ability, Gerhardt is gifted with an intellectual insight that draws compelling and fresh performances from his dextrous fingers.

Program:
Paul Dukas - Overture to Polyeucte
Ernest Bloch - Schelomo, Hebraic Rhapsody for Cello & Orchestra
Sergei Rachmaninoff - The Rock, Fantasy Op. 7
Dmitri Shostakovich - Symphony No. 9, Op 70
