The TSO welcomes the Vancouver Symphony Orchestra on a tour honouring Bramwell Tovey’s final season as Music Director. He pays homage to his English heritage with the quintessential English orchestral work, the beguiling book of character sketches that makes up Elgar’s “Enigma” Variations. His frequent concerto partner, famed Canadian violinist James Ehnes, is the soloist for the profoundly expressive concerto by Brahms. (Pictured: James Ehnes, violin)

Maestro Tovey has also invited the renowned BC soprano Marion Newman to join the tour. The program will include a new work by Maestro Tovey, “Ancestral Voices”. Written especially for Ms. Newman, it is a deeply personal narrative to Ms. Newman as a BC First Nati...ons woman; it speaks to reconciliation in honor of Canada’s 150th Celebration in 2017.

Program:
Bramwell Tovey: Ancestral Voices
Brahms: Violin Concerto
Intermission
Elgar: Variations on an Original Theme “Enigma”

Performers:
Bramwell Tovey, conductor
