Due to the extension of current lockdown restrictions in Austria, Alexander’s series of five New Year’s concerts in Innsbruck and Kufstein have unfortunately been cancelled.
From this evening you can access the video broadcast of Alexander’s performance last week with Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal featuring music by Richard Strauss and Jean Sibelius .
In their review of the concert entitled ‘Alexander Shelley, Magisterial!’, Le Devoir praised the concert and ‘the texture of the strings, the tension, the harmonic saturation’ in an ‘exceptional Death and Transfiguration’.
A week of concerts in Quebec sees Alexander conducting three varied programmes of music by Richard Strauss, Wagner, Tchaikovsky, Bernstein, Sibelius, José Evangelista and Rimsky-Korsakov over the coming days.
‘Curiosity, Genius and the Search for Petula Clark’ the most recent video livestream concert by the National Arts Centre Orchestra and Alexander, featuring music by Samuel Coleridge-Taylor, France Dompierre, Kelly-Marie Murphy, Frederic Chopin and Amadeus Mozart is now available to view for free on the the NAC website here.
Alexander Shelley and Canada’s NAC Orchestra this Saturday night continue their new season of livestreams featuring bold programming and showcasing next generation artists.
‘Affairs of the Heart’, which streams live and for free at 8pm on Saturday, November 7th, features works spanning 1957-2018, by composers from Canada, the UK and the US, and will be a performance full of the sounds of contrasting cultures and moods, and pure musical virtuosity.
The NAC Orchestra makes a triumphant return to Southam Hall tonight, October 31st!
This livestream concert heralds a new era for NACO, throwing wide open the doors of the orchestra experience. We offer you music for reflection, contemplation and celebration.
