Toronto Symphony Orchestra | Shostakovich 5 + Crow Plays Brahms
January 28 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm
One event on January 29, 2023 at 3:00 pm
After Shostakovich’s music was publicly denounced for failing to conform to the Soviet ideal, his Fifth Symphony was a work on which his life depended—literally. The monumental creation he produced was a crashing success, appeasing the establishment, thrilling audiences, and crackling with covert defiance. Finnish conducting prodigy Tarmo Peltokoski draws out every nuance of this all-time-great masterpiece in his Canadian debut, and Concertmaster Jonathan Crow performs a towering cornerstone of the repertoire in Brahms’s luminous Violin Concerto.
