Gould as Never Before

Never before has Glenn Gould’s Opus No. 1 been performed by a full symphonic orchestra. That will change when NACO takes the stage in this world premiere orchestration of Gould’s String Quartet. Arranged by internationally-renowned composer Zosha Di Castri, this concert offers a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hear the work of the Canadian classical music genius, interpreted in full symphonic glory. For Gould fans, it’s an event not to be missed.
