Prairie Debut Alumna and Friends
The Lougheed Centre is bringing a special classical music performance to Camrose in collaboration with Prairie Debut. And tickets can be purchased for in-person or digital access.
This special presentation brings a trio of musicians who will perform music from three excellent composers – Schubert, Wijeratne, and Beethoven. Set for Sunday, Oct. 4 at 2 p.m., this is a show that will warm your hearts as the temperatures start to cool in Alberta.
Prairie Debut alumna pianist, Akiko Tominaga, is joined by her musical friends; violinist, Laura Reid and cellist, Kathleen de Caen, in a program that celebrates the pinnacle composers of three musical periods.
Romantic era composer Franz Schubert, famous for his lyric vocal songs, begins the program with Piano Trio in B-flat major D. 898 “Sonatensatz”, which evokes the exuberance of his youth.
One of Canada’s most prolific composers, Sri Lankan-born Dinuk Wijeratne, brings together Middle Eastern-inspired melody and North Indian rhythms in “Love Triangle”, a boundary-crossing work that also integrates a classical structure with three very improvisatory cadenzas from each instrument.
Finishing the program will be a celebration of Ludwig van Beethoven’s 250th Anniversary, a work simply known as the ‘Archduke’, this work culminates Beethoven’s canon of piano trio repertoire.
