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.

Repertoire:

Milhaud

The Creation of the World

Stravinsky

Concerto in E-flat, Dumbarton Oaks

Philip Glass

Symphony No. 3
