The steppes of Eastern Europe have historically given rise to some of the most emotionally rich works of classical music. The OCM is proud to present the world premiere of Ukrainian-Canadian composer Larysa Kuzmenko’s work for string orchestra, entitled Kurelek’s Gallery, which was inspired by the paintings by the eponymous Ukrainian-Canadian painter, William Kurelek. Czech composer Dvořák brings both joyful and wistful elements to his Serenade for Strings and celebrated Ukrainian composer, Skoryk, who died in 2020, carried the tradition of emotional expression to contemporary times with the evocative Melodiya. Lastly, Canadian trumpeter Karen Donnelly and Ukrainian-Canadian pianist Serhiy Salov will command the stage in Shostakovich’s Concerto for Piano and Trumpet in C minor. At this concert, the OCM will pay tribute to the Honourable Marlene Jennings, the first Black woman from Quebec to be elected to Parliament.
