Sibelius’s only violin concerto towers as a pinnacle of the genre, dark and searing melodies soaring above a snowy Finnish landscape. The life-enhancing joy of Dvořák’s well-known Eighth Symphony concludes the concert with heroic abandon. Canadian composer Michael Oesterle’s Home opens the program, and Canadian conductor Tania Miller – former Music Director of the Victoria Symphony and Associate Conductor of the Vancouver Symphony – commands the podium with her dynamic style, charm, and grace.
