Here are a couple more season announcements.
The 2023/24 TSO season is the usual mix of symphonic, vocal and lighter fare. Several concerts caught my eye. The first is the return of Sir Andrew Davis on November 8th and 9th 2023 with a programme that includes Fauré’s Requiem. Later that month, on the 22nd, there’s the first of two concerts featuring Emily D’Angelo. She’ll be singing the Berg Seven Early Songs with Michael Tilson-Thomas on the podium. That programme also includes Mahler Symphony No. 5. She’s back on May 1st and 2nd 2024 with the music from her excellent enargeia CD. Gustavo Gimeno conducts a programme that also includes Brahms Symphony No.1 and a new work by Alison Yun-Fei Jiang. On Sunday June 16th in North York there’s a programme that includes a new piece by Ian Cusson created as part of the Art of Healing project with CAMH. Gimeno conducts a programme that also includes Bartok and Mozart. Full details of the season are here.
The line up for the 2023 Toronto Bach Festival which runs May 26th to 28th has also been announced. There are four concerts with Steven Devine performing the entire Well Tempered Clavier, That’s in two parts on the Saturday afternoon. The Friday night opener will feature concerti including the rarely performed Concerto in C major for two harpsichords. On the Saturday night there’s an informal, café style, Kaffeehaus with performances of secular vocal music. The Sunday afternoon brings more sacred fare with the Leipzig Cantatas performed by a very impressive line up of soloists. Full details are here.
