THE SCOOP | Tafelmusik Renews Music Director’s Contract Through 2023

By Michael Vincent on August 13, 2020

Tafelmusik has announced Italian violinist Elisa Citterio has renewed her contract as Music Director through to the end of the 2022-23 season.

Contracted initially in early 2017, Citterio has helped maintain Tafelmusik’s exploration of both early and new music repertoire following co-founder Jeanne Lamon’s 33-year tenure. For the past two seasons, she has made her mark with six new commissions, a unique program featuring Tchaikovsky, a new orchestral arrangement of Bach’s Goldberg Variations, and the creation of new multimedia programs The Indigo Project and The Harlequin Salon.

Citterio has also invited several leading artists to Toronto, including Rinaldo Alessandrini, David Blackadder, Emi Ferguson, Vittorio Ghielmi, Roberta Invernizzi, Vanni Moretto, Masumi Nagasawa, Enrico Onofri, Suba and Trichy Sankaran, Doron Sherwin, and Masaaki Suzuki.

“What a joy it is to make music with my Tafelmusik colleagues, who inspire me every day,” said Citterio. “Here in Toronto, we have a unique opportunity to build and strengthen artistic bridges, and to create something wonderful through collaborations that cross many boundaries. I am grateful for the trust and support I’ve received and look forward to sharing many beautiful musical moments in the years to come.”

After the COVID-19 pandemic forced Tafelmusik to cut the 2019-20 season short, Tafelmusik’s orchestra musicians have been active with Tafelmusik at Home, an online series of five solo and duo performances hosted by Tafelmusik musicians from their homes.

“Working with Elisa is a joy,” said Executive Director Carol Kehoe. “Not only is she a gifted musician, she’s smart, ambitious and funny. As a co-leader, she easily helps me do my best work and together, we’re excited about how Tafelmusik can build on its legacy to create a vibrant future.”
