The Kindred Spirits Orchestra returns to the CBC Glenn Gould Studio for a special concert featuring renowned European conductor Maestro Jiří Petrdlík and the internationally renowned Canadian pianist Christina Petrowska-Quilico. Inspired by the little-known works of the 19th century romantic composer Carl Maria von Weber, 20th century composer Paul Hindemith weaves his own voice into the bombastic crowd-pleaser Symphonic Metamorphosis. Once hailed the “Canadian Mozart,” composer André Mathieu wrote his long-lost Piano Concerto No. 4 at the youthful age of eighteen: a truly remarkable accomplishment for such an incredibly emotive work, mature beyond his years. Ahead of his time, Prokofiev explores dense and forceful orchestral textures, which the composer described as “iron and steel” in his rarely performed Symphony No. 2.
