Hamelin by Fran KaufmanIt’s a juggernaut among piano concertos, full of drama, intensity, and thunder – and to perform it, Symphony Nova Scotia teams up with one of the world’s biggest superstar pianists. Hear Brahms’ glorious Second Piano Concerto with the one and only Marc-André Hamelin, a “paragon of virtuosic refinement” (Boston Globe) with “legendary, transcendent technique” (Gramophone) and “supernatural control” (The Telegraph). Don’t miss this rare opportunity to hear an “international treasure” (The New York Times) performing live with Symphony Nova Scotia.
