The Program

  • Mozart—Piano Concerto for Two Pianos: Written shortly before he left Salzburg for Vienna at age 23, Mozart composed this piece so he could play it with his sister Maria Anna. Even though the two pianos are the centerpiece, they don't appear immediately—it takes a swell of strings and oboes to usher them in. Once they do appear, though, their exchange naturally recalls sibling rivalry, often bickering and occasionally vying for their mother's attention.
  • Shostakovich—Symphony No. 7, Leningrad: Shostakovich's longest symphony, his seventh meditates on the horrors of World War II and became popular both in Russia and the US as a symbol of resistance against the Nazis. The four-movement piece pays homage to the estimated 25 million Soviet citizens who died in the war and plays often at the Leningrad Cemetery.

The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra

Although it now contains more than 75 musicians and a full calendar, The Vancouver Symphony Orchestra started much smaller. In the '70s, a group of talented locals bonded over their shared passion for classical music and got together to play for people who still appreciated Mozart despite his lack of leisure suit. Under the direction of Larry Hirtel they grew, and later joined forces with another small group of musicians under the direction of Walt Cleland. Today, they continue introducing residents to symphonic music thanks to frequent concerts and the conducting skills of Maestro Salvador Brotons.
