Some of the most famous compositions in classical music aren’t necessarily most familiar to audiences through their performance in a symphony setting. Instead, they’re best known as part of larger operas or choral works, while others are associated with the world of ballet.
Tonight, as part of its Masterworks Concert Series, the Regina Symphony Orchestra is presenting several works that were either composed or adapted for the ballet. Guest artist is violinist Ingerine Dahl, and the composers being showcased are Stravinsky, Saint-Saens and Prokofiev.
The concert goes tonight at Conexus Arts Centre at 8 p.m. To give you a sense of Dahl’s talent, here’s video of her and a chamber group performing a work called “Oblivion” by Piazzolla:
