Review by Judith Caldwell The National Academy Orchestra of Canada under the baton of Boris Brott offered a Romantic and Fantastic evening of music to a sold-out audience despite the competition from the opening ceremonies of the Pan Am Games.
Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4!? With the brass section doubled?! We all know how to improve any recipe, don’t we? Double the chocolate and add bacon. That’s the Bruckner spirit. And what better way to start the 28th Boris Brott Summer Music Festival than with a bang like that?
