The Royal Conservatory of Music did a partial reveal of their classical and jazz programming for Koerner Hall in the 2022/3 season. It’s a pretty typical mx; heavy on piano, strings and chamber music, but there are a few interesting classical vocal concerts. Here are the highlights:
October 29th 2022 8pm – Philippe Jaroussky with Ensemble Artaserse in a Handel and Vivaldi programme. I like Jaroussky but I wouldn’t describe him as “the world’s reigning countertenor” though.
February 5th 2023 3-m – Rod Williams with the Bach Collegium Japan with Bach and Telemann. Apparently the line up will include Bach’s COVID cantata “Ich habe genug”.
February 22nd 2023 8pm – Emily D’Angelo with works by Hildegard von Bingen, Missy Mazzoli, Sarah Kirkland Snider and Hildur Gu∂nadóttir. Yep, it’s enargeia CD tour. For more details see p59 of the Winter 2021 edition of Opera Canada. TL:DR version; it’s a bold and excellent album.
Also dates for the GGS Spring Opera; March 15th and 17th 2023 at 7.30 pm. No info on what is to be performed.
