7:30 pm MINSOO SOHN piano Cathedral Church of the Redeemer

Director Ethan Hawke documents the career of Seymour Bernstein, a classical pianist who abandoned his rising performance career at age 50 to retreat to a modest, private life as educator and composer.

“Is it possible for a pianist to be too good? If anyone faces jeopardy with that question, it’s Marc-André Hamelin” (The New York Times). This is Mr Hamelin’s first Calgary performance since his sold-out Honens recital in 2010.

Music of Beethoven

Ten years since winning the top prize at the 2006 Honens Piano Competition, Minsoo Sohn returns to Calgary with a convincing and moving recital of Beethoven’s last three piano sonatas.

7:30 pm ARTEM YASYNSKYY piano Performance Hall at Studio Bell

Music of Lang, Schubert

Inspired by the art songs of Franz Schubert, composer David Lang enlisted four classically trained artists active in alternative-pop circles to perform a new song cycle called death speaks. Commissioned by and premiered at Carnegie Hall and Stanford Lively Arts in 2012, death speaks makes its Canadian premiere at this late-night cabaret that also features Schubert’s monumental Death and the Maiden string quartet.

12:30 and 2 pm STORYTELLERS PETER AND THE WOLF Drop In Zone at Studio Bell Artem Yasynskyy piano Christian Goutsis narrator Music of Prokofiev

Wish ‘Happy 80th Birthday’ to a bird, a cat, a duck, a hunter, a wolf and a boy named Peter at the telling of this timeless classic.

Bask in the sounds of exquisite chamber music at this free concert under the late summer sun. Don’t forget your picnic basket!

featuring Clarice Evans narrator Music of Alain, Cage, Debussy, Pesson, Ravel, Satie

Artem Yasynskyy left us spellbound as Finalist of the 2015 Honens Piano Competition. Back by popular demand, this recital pays tribute to Erik Satie’s 150th birthday and the composer’s underrated musical influence.
