Toronto Symphony Orchestra | Ehnes Plays Beethoven
April 6, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on April 7, 2022 at 8:00 pm
Sir Andrew Davis, conductor
James Ehnes, violin
- Emilie LeBel: the sediments (World Première/TSO Commission)
- R. Strauss: Till Eulenspiegels lustige Streiche (Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks)
- Beethoven: Violin Concerto
The extraordinary James Ehnes—“a violinist in a class of his own” (The Times)—performs one of the supreme treasures of the repertoire, Beethoven’s Violin Concerto. Conductor Laureate Sir Andrew Davis describes Emilie LeBel’s work as “music that reflects her intelligence and audaciousness,” and he leads the World Première of her composition. And, rendered with Strauss’s trademark brilliance and flair, Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks provides a spectacular fun showpiece for the entire Orchestra.
