WHO'S WHO | Mooredale Concerts Celebrates 30 Years

By Member on September 26, 2018

This message is brought to you by Mooradeale Concerts

For 29 years, a legion of music lovers of all ages has passed through our doors. In gratitude, we’re honoured to present a pre-eminent 30th season, which is fresh, bold, and deep. Our 2018-19 season showcases three string quartets, recognized as top-tier in their respective countries, a wind quintet super-group, all-Beethoven program, and grand piano works by Mozart and Schumann.

Six concerts, modest pricing, intimate seating, great music guaranteed. Here is a sample of our 30th anniversary season.

September 30 — Calidore String Quartet With accolades and prestigious awards across the globe, this young New York-based group (including cellist Estelle Choi from Calgary) have firmly established themselves as one of the finest ensembles performing today. In 2018, they won both an Avery Fisher Career Grant and BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artists. They will open our season performing a preview of their debut CD (October 11 release – titled Resilience) that has a theme of composers dealing with conflict/diversity through creativity. Works by Prokofiev, Golijov, Janacek, and ending with Mendelssohn’s stormy yet sublime, String Quartet in F minor, Op. 80.

“Deep reserves of virtuosity and irrepressible dramatic instinct” — New York Times

October 28 — Dorian Wind Quintet Recognized by critics and audiences internationally for its uniquely polished and passionate performances, they are one of chamber music’s longest continuously active ensembles. The Dorian made history as the first wind quintet to appear at Carnegie Hall, and they have contributed to the genre by commissioning nearly 40 new works. They will perform an epic program: 15th Century (Henrich Isaac), wind/piano duos by Fauré, Pulitzer Prize winners (George Perle, Samuel Barber), and Canadian Premiere of a commissioned new work by Amanda Harberg.

“One of chamber music’s most sparkling and eloquent ensembles” — TIME Magazine

March 17, 2019 — Christian Blackshaw, piano has performed with leading orchestras including London, St. Petersburg, New York, and Rotterdam Philharmonics, Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Mariinsky Orchestra, and San Francisco Symphony. He has worked with illustrious conductors Sir Simon Rattle, Valery Gergiev, Gianandrea Noseda, and Sir Neville Marriner. His hugely acclaimed Complete Mozart Sonata Series at Wigmore Hall was described as “captivating” and “masterful”. Christian will perform Mozart (Sonatas K. 333 & K. 310) and Schumann’s massive Fantasie in C Major, Op. 17.

Performances take place in Walter Hall, “one of Toronto’s original fine, small recital halls …” Seating 496 patrons, the hall is specially designed for chamber music and solo recitals. It has perfect acoustics, with no seat further than 14 rows from the artists – intimacy guaranteed. Located in the Edward Johnson Building, University of Toronto, 80 Queen’s Park Crescent (Museum subway), Sundays at 3:15 pm (Concert Series) or 1:15-2:15 pm (Music & Truffles).

Concert Series subscriptions for SIX events are: adults $140; seniors $130; and for patrons under 30, only $90. Prices include taxes and there are no service charges. Subscribers are not only assured of their seats, but also save up to 47 percent over single ticket purchases. All seating is general admission so patrons get their personal choice in location.
