East meets West and love meets tragedy, in a monumental season-opening concert conducted by Maestro Gordon Gerrard. The heart-wrenching beauty of He’s Butterfly Lovers Violin Concerto parallels the tragic romance found in the ballet music of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, and two Chinese-Canadians – composer Vincent Ho and violinist Lucy Wang – further electrify this program, as Ho’s dream-like Dragon Realms bridges Eastern and Western musical styles, and Wang’s virtuosity as soloist takes centre stage.
