Who thought my first show of 2017 happened to be classical orchestra music at the NAC.
NOTE: Didn’t photograph this show but wanted to enjoy it.
Went to the first of two night of Pinchas Conducts Haydn.
I wanted to go because it was the Canadian debut of Japanese violinist Fumiaki Miura.
What I found out after the show that he is only 23 turning 24.
In 2009, he is the youngest person to win Joseph Joachim Hannover International Violin Competition.
The show started off with Elgar’s Chanson de matin, Op. 15, No.2 and Chanson de nuit, Op.15, No.1
Then Fumiaki Miura came on and performed Beethoven’s Romance No. 2 in F Major, Op. 50 and Saint-Saëns’ Introduction and Rondo Capriccios, Op. 28.
The talent from him was so amazing!
Somehow I wonder if he will crossover into the pop world while he is still young.
Hey! Look at Charlotte Church, I wonder what she is up to now? Or he can try and maybe go down the route of Owen Pallett’s music.

Afterward there was intermission and the big finale was Pinchas conducting Haydn’s Symphony No. 104 in D Major “LONDON” which ran for 30 minutes.
Also I want to mention Carissa Klopoushak who is in the NAC Orchestra.
Overall I didn’t fall asleep to this, very captivating and made you want to visualize the music!
I totally recommend you to see this if you can!
Hope to see more concerts like this from the NAC Orchestra in 2017.
