• YANNICK NÉZET-SÉGUIN: ROMANTIC TREASURES

Schumann – Bruch – Louise FARRENC

The only woman to teach at the Conservatoire de Paris in the 19th century, Louise Farrenc was a masterful composer and heir to Beethoven. Under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, the OM’s explosive performance of the Symphony No. 3 bolsters Farrenc’s legacy as a noteworthy composer. OM violist Elvira Misbakhova and clarinetist Simon Aldrich take centre stage, performing show-stopping solos in Max Bruch’s Concerto for Clarinet and Viola. The instruments’ timbres come together beautifully, enchanting the audience from the first notes to the magnificent final coda. The program opens with the overture to Robert Schumann’s Manfred, which sets a Lord Byron poem to music with strikingly poignant emotions and Romantic passion.
