Close Encounters ... in Vienna & Madrid

Temerty Theatre, TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning (273 Bloor St. West)

Bohemian composer Johann Baptist Vanhal and Salzburg’s native son Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart saw their careers flourish in Vienna, while the Italian cellist Luigi Boccherini composed music with a distinctive Spanish flair after settling in Madrid. Travel with them to their adopted cities in this program of bright and charming classical gems for oboe and string trio.

Beethoven Pastoral Symphony

Koerner Hall, TELUS Centre for Performance and Learning (273 Bloor St. West)

Spring is in the air and invites a performance of Beethoven’s "Pastoral" Symphony No. 6. Throw open your windows and take a deep breath as his music leads you into the countryside. There may be storms, but amid country folk, shepherds, and babbling streams he offers refreshment for the soul—a perfect pairing with Elisa Citterio’s much-anticipated performance of Beethoven’s Violin Concerto, one of the world’s best-known and best-loved concertos.

From the 19th Century...

UofT Opera’s season concludes with costumed and staged scenes from the 19th century operatic repertoire. Although opera had its beginnings in the late 16th century and continues with vitality to our present day, it is the 19th century which many consider to be the apogee of romantic vocal writing. From Donizetti to Delibes, Verdi to Wagner, join us for this exciting, one-time performance as we highlight opera’s golden age.

UofT 12TET with Ineke van Doorn and Marc van Vugt

TERRY PROMANE director
INEKE VAN DOORN vocals and MARC VAN VUGT guitar

With fairy-like sounds, funky arrangements, modern music full of harrowing and twisting harmonies and sadly comforting songs, singer Ineke van Doorn and guitarist Marc van Vugt explore the boundaries between improvisation and composition, in original songs with regular lyrics and in pure improvisations, by giving their characteristic interpretation of standards or by amalgamation of different musical expressions.
