      Maestro Bramwell Tovey is back in town this weekend for a big piano event: the VSO music director emeritus will be at the podium to team up with Canadian keyboard legend Louis Lortie (shown here).

      They’ll take on Ludwig van Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-Flat Major, a piece that will find the Montreal-born master taking you from the playful to the serene. Elsewhere on the program are two more gorgeous classics: Claude Debussy’s poetic Prelude to the Afternoon of a Faun, and the lush music from Act 2 of Tchaikovsky’s ballet Sleeping Beauty
