Nicolas Ellis, conductor
Jerry Hu, piano
Rising star maestro Nicolas Ellis makes his long awaited SSO debut in an unforgettable night of iconic music.
Beethoven’s 5th Symphony has stopped audiences in their tracks since its premiere. Timelessly arresting and bursting with passion and energy, the 5th Symphony bursts open with the four most memorable notes in all of music. Paired with the work is Jeder Baum spricht by Iranian-Canadian composer Iman Habibi. The work is inspired by the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth.
Saskatoon pianist Jerry Hu won the 2021 Saskatchewan Music Festival Shurniak Concerto Competition, and now he makes his SSO debut with Beethoven’s 3rd Piano Concerto.
