National Arts Centre Orchestra Music Director Alexander Shelley, will lead the orchestra across the country during the Spring and Fall with performances that pair classical favourites with new Canadian creations.
Alexander returns to the National Arts Centre Orchestra this week for a full month of performances in Ottawa and around the country.
In the first of several such concerts over the coming months, Alexander this Sunday bids farewell to the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra’s Sunday subscription audience with a programme of Haydn, Liszt and Tchaikovsky.
On March 30th Alexander Shelley continues his series exploring the works of Sibelius and Prokofiev, this time welcoming the young and dynamic Vadym Kholodenko to join him on the main stage.
This weekend brings with it a particularly special moment as Alexander Shelley and the Nuremberg Symphony tackle Mahler’s mighty 2nd Symphony in two concerts at the Meistersingerhalle.
Alexander’s relationship with Leipzig’s Gewandhaus Orchestra has blossomed over the last few seasons and sees him returning for two subscriptions concerts this week.
