A spectacular showpiece that escalates into a whirlwind of dazzling arpeggios, esteemed pianist Louis Lortie joins the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra for Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 2.

An ode to the French classics of Ravel, Saint-Saens, and Franck, the concert also features a visionary fusion of French and Germanic orchestral traditions, and showcases the orchestra at its finest. Quickly becoming known for his probing and vibrant interpretations of music of all periods, the show is conducted by special guest Maestro Matthew Halls.

Catch French Classics featuring Louis Lortie at 8:00pm on May 5 and 6, 2017 at the Jack Singer Concert Hall, Arts Commons (205 8th Ave. SE).
