“We are all so thrilled to welcome Jane Coop, a legend among Canadian pianists to our stages” said OSO music director, Rosemary Thomson. “Beethoven’s Fourth Piano Concerto showed that this composer, renowned for his driving rhythms and abrupt dynamic changes, could also write in a more intimate style that simply makes the piano sing.”

The program will open with the Orchestral Suite No. 1 by Johann Sebastian Bach, a collection of dances from the Baroque era which display unlimited melodic invention with sparkling rhythms. Finally, Brahms takes the audience to a more romantic scene inspired by the beauty of nature complete with horn hunting calls and rustic dances closing this program with his Serenade No. 1.

Rosemary Thomson will host a pre-concert chat one hour before each Chase Masterworks performance at Concert Close-Up.

The show will take place Sept. 21 at 7:30 p.m. for ticket information visit the Okanagan Symphony website.
