Continuing our celebration of Beethoven’s 250th birthday in 2020, our April 5 concert culminates in his heroic 3rd Symphony—the “Eroica.” That piece by itself would make for a spectacular performance, but we’ve got a few other things planned.
Eroica will be the final piece of our programme, but we’ll begin with Arthur Bachmann’s musical tribute to Drs. Ted and Lola Rozsa, who contributed so much to the arts in Calgary. Their legacy is honoured and continued through the Rozsa Foundation.
Following the Rozsa Overture, is Poulenc’s brilliant and jovial Concerto for Two Pianos, performed by special guests, the Coimbra Piano Duo!
The Coimbra Piano Duo
Carmen Morin and Lana Henchell are the sensational and award-winning pianists behind the duo. In 2018, they made their international debut with orchestra in Coimbra, Portugal, as winners of the Special Prize “Francis Poulenc” at the 2018 Coimbra World Piano Competition. The concert featured the Two Piano Concerto of Francis Poulenc under Maestro Jose Eduardo, and the Orquestra Classica do Centro.
Morin and Henchell’s talents are remarkable. For a taste of what you can expect at the April 5 concert, we highly recommend a visit to their website, coimbrapianoduo.com/listen, where you can watch and listen to this incredible duo.
A Little Bit of Civic History
For the Civic, this concert is particularly sweet: both pianists are a part of our history. Lana Henchell made her concerto debut at age 13, and Carmen Morin made her orchestral debut at the age of 10—both with the Calgary Civic Symphony. Since then, along with many other professional accomplishments, both have performed as soloists with orchestras across Canada. We are beyond thrilled to welcome them as featured artists for Eroica on April 5, 2020.
Postponed until further notice.
