- Vancouver Symphony Orchestra
- Exhilarating Soundscapes
Presented by the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra as part of the Classical Traditions series at the Chan Centre
Maestro Tovey conducts a magnificent concert that explores a world of exhilarating soundscapes. French composer Darius Milhaud’s The Creation of the World is rich, exotic music written for a ballet based on African folk mythology.
The Third Symphony of American composer Philip Glass is a fascinating piece of sonic architecture for string orchestra, and Stravinsky’s Dumbarton Oaks is a beautiful neo-classical Chamber concerto.
