Classical Music

Revel in the work that many consider Dvořák’s greatest, and experience Stefan Dohr, Principal Horn of the mighty Berlin Philharmonic, performing Richard Strauss’ stunning, virtuosic Horn Concerto No.2. 

Lush & Romantic

Propelled by a relentless energy, Dvořák’s Symphony No.7 is a Romantic masterpiece that many consider his greatest work. Lush and rich, and decidedly moody in nature, Dvořák creates an exciting world of sound coloured by his Czech heritage and deep admiration for Brahms and Beethoven.

Strauss’ Second Horn Concerto presents a challenge that only the very best attempt, and here it is performed by Stefan Dohr, Principal Horn of the mighty Berlin Philharmonic. Demanding an exhilarating display of skill, this will be a rare and memorable moment in the Concert Hall.

The program opens with melodies surging and fading as our wind, brass and string sections come together for Kodály’s Dances of Galanta, a joyful collection of music where folk roots run centuries deep.
