Nova Scotia’s own Dinuk Wijeratne is a JUNO-winning dynamo. He’s “exuberantly creative” (New York Times). “Internationally respected for his virtuosity and sensitivity” (CBC). “An artist who reflects a positive vision of our cultural future” (Toronto Star). And now, Symphony Nova Scotia proudly presents Dinuk’s newest work – the middle-Eastern-influenced Clarinet Concerto, written specifically for Dinuk’s close friend and longtime collaborator, the Syrian-born clarinetist Kinan Azmeh. Plus, we perform Ligeti’s Concert Românesc, made famous from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey, and finally, Beethoven’s stunning Symphony No. 7 – a beautiful, unforgettable masterpiece, and one of the most popular symphonies of all time.
