Pianist Eve Egoyan for Music Toronto at the Jane Mallett Theatre, 8 p.m.
This serious, intellectually and musically curious artist doesn’t present solo recitals in her hometown unless she has something to say. Egoyan’s focus these days is on contemporary composers James Tenney, Piers Hellawell, Linda C. Smith and Michael Finnissy. Concert details here.
Associates of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre. 7:30 p.m. $17-20
Mondays are always quiet nights for concerts in Toronto, and because the field is so wide open, I’ve always wondered why arts presenters didn’t see this as an opportunity to cut through the noise? At any rate, Associates of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra will be on hand for the final concert of their season: Retros and Renegades (has a nice ring to it). The concert features Britten: 3 Divertimenti; Schumann: String quartet No.1 in A Op.41; Korngold: String quartet No.2 in E-flat. Details here.
The Associates of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra: Amanda Goodburn and Sydney Chun, violin; Teng Li and Theresa Rudolph, viola; Emmanuelle Beaulieu Bergeron, cello at Trinity-St. Paul’s. 7:30 p.m. $17-20
To kick-off the week, musicians from the TSO will present an evening of quintets, including Mozart’s String quintet No.3 in C, and Brahms: String quintet No.2 in G. These “Quintessential Quintets” mark the 4th event of the ATSO’s season, which comes to an end on May 26th. Details here.
