Event Details

It’s one of the most beloved works of the Romantic era and Rimsky-Korsakov’s grandest symphonic masterpiece. For the first time in almost a decade, Symphony Nova Scotia performs the imaginative, colourful Scheherazade. Music Director Holly Mathieson conducts this awe-inspiring tour de force that the composer himself called “a kaleidoscope of fairy-tale images” to kick off its 2024/25 Spotlight Series.

Plus, multi-award-winning, rising star Canadian pianist Tony Yike Yang—the youngest-ever laureate in the history of the International Chopin Piano Competition—performs Tchaikovsky’s captivating Piano Concerto No. 1, a piece that has been admired for over 150 years for its virtuosic piano writing, lush melodies, and beautiful orchestration.
