It’s a slow Thursday this week in Toronto, so recommend raising a glass with Tafelmusik’s latest online premiere at home. We’re especially looking forward to Mozart’s Symphony no. 39 in E-flat Major — a fun, cheeky work that works surprisingly well with period instruments. They will also be playing Bologne, Andreas Romberg, and another Mozart gem: Andante for flute & orchestra in C Major. K.315. | Details
