with Guest soloist Kerson Leong, Violin
Get your annual dose of the Ottawa Symphony’s long-standing mission to bring you large-scale symphonic works with Mahler V! Gustav Mahler is a favourite composer of our Artistic Director, Alain Trudel, as well as a favourite for many of our patrons, who look forward to these immense works. Also featured on the program are Alexina Louie, one of Canada’s most highly regarded composers, and Sergei Prokofiev. We’re so pleased to have virtuoso Kerson Leong back with us for this concert – the last time he played with us he was embarking on his career, and now he joins us as an established face on the international scene.
*Alexina Louie, Songs of Paradise
Sergei Prokofiev, Violin Concerto No. 2 in g minor
Gustav Mahler, Symphony no. 5
