Bernard Labadie

Since his debut in the 2001-2002 season, Bernard Labadie has been a frequent guest conductor with the New World Symphony. The Canadian Baroque specialist returns to the New World Center podium this weekend with a program that combines a tried-and-true symphonic staple with rarities from the Baroque and classical eras.

The Overture and two dances from Handel’s opera Ariodante open the concert. Haydn’s Sinfonia concertante, written in 1792 for his triumphant London concerts, features the unusual solo quartet of violin, cello, oboe and bassoon. Mozart’s eternally popular Symphony No. 40 in G minor concludes the program.

Bernard Labadie conducts the New World Symphony 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 p.m. Sunday at the New World Center in Miami Beach.; 305-673-3331.
