Dvořák Symphony No. 8

Thu, Nov 16–Sat, Nov 18, 2023 Roy Thomson Hall

Celebrated Ukrainian conductor Oksana Lyniv leads Dvořák’s lively Symphony No. 8, inspired by the Bohemian countryside and rousing Czech dances. The spotlight shines on the 2022 Honens Piano Competition Laureate, and Lyniv’s Ukrainian compatriot, Illia Ovcharenko, who performs Liszt’s sparkling First Piano Concerto, with its intricate piano-and-orchestra dialogue, lyrical passages, and romantic bravura. The Canadian Première of composer Zoltan Almashi’s Maria’s City, dedicated to the city of Mariupol, rounds out a program paying tribute to the unwavering spirit of the Ukrainian people.
