Royal Conservatory | Komitas: A Canadian Tribute

October 25 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

$40

A multi-faceted celebration of the 150th birthday of the “soul of Armenian music,” Father Komitas Vartabed .

“[Komitas] …singlehandedly laid the foundations for Armenia’s classical tradition. And as a collector and arranger of folksongs, he did for Armenia what Bartók did for Hungary, turning simple material into bewitchingly sophisticated polyphony. After a Komitas concert in Paris, Claude Debussy declared that on the basis of a single song, he deserved to be recognised as a great composer.” (The Guardian)

Amici Chamber Ensemble has a 30-year legacy of innovative, evocative programming and a passion for presenting the best chamber music and musicians. Artistic Directors clarinetist Joaquin Valdepeñas, cellist David Hetherington, and pianist Serouj Kradjian invite some of the finest musicians to join them in celebrating friendship through music.

At this special concert, Amici will be joined by baritone Russell Braun, renowned for his luminous voice “capable of the most powerful explosions as well as the gentlest covered notes” (The Toronto Star), soprano Lynn Isnar, violinist Mark Fewer, violist Barry Shiffman, Elmer Iseler Singers, Canadian Children’s Opera Company, Canadian Children’s Opera Company, Young Voices Toronto, and Hamazkayin Toronto “Erepuni” Dance Ensemble.
