Guest conductor, Canadian Adam Johnson, leads the RSO in a concert featuring the music of three of history’s greatest composers. J.S. Bach’s extraordinary Orchestral Suite No. 3, featuring the famous and beloved “Air on the G-string,” sets the stage for two greats of the Classical era: one of Haydn’s rare minor-key symphonies showcases his typical musical humour, and the great Canadian pianist Jane Coop brings her pianistic poetry to perform Beethoven’s monumental Emperor Concerto.
