Galiano Ensemble Performs Music from the Baltic Sea
Wednesday, January 9th, 2013
8:00 PM to 10:00 PM
There is a feeling of melancholy in string orchestra music from this northern part of Europe. The feeling can be even more pronounced in winter when the snow and cold contribute to a gray and sombre motif. At the same time, however, a listener is struck by the emotion and warmth of the music which is evocative and invites contemplation.
Join the Galiano Ensemble of Victoria, with conductor Yariv Aloni, in their first performance of 2013, for an evening of delightful music. During the program you will hear Kurt Atterberg (Sweden), Sinfonia for Strings; Jean Sibelius (Finland), Suite Champêtre; Heino Eller (Estonia), Five Pieces for Strings; and Carl Nielsen (Denmark), Little Suite in A minor, Op. 1.
The concert will be performed Wednesday, January 9, 2013 at 8:00 pm in the Phillip T. Young Recital Hall at the University of Victoria. Tickets are $33 ($30 for seniors). Advance tickets are available at Ivy’s Books and Munro’s Books, or by calling 250-704-2580. Tickets may also be purchased at the door.
