Toronto Symphony Orchestra | TSO Live Stream: Gimeno’s Homecoming
October 14, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pmFree
Join Music Director Gustavo Gimeno and the TSO as they return to the Roy Thomson Hall stage for an alluring live-stream performance of diverse and tuneful offerings. A playful symphony by 18th-century Black composer—and champion fencer—Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint-Georges, opens the program. Brahms’s youthful energy and command of melody shine in a Serenade written when he was just 25 years old. Between these two musical gems, the TSO string section sings in Canadian Nathaniel Dett’s “His Song”, a soulful and poignant depiction of African American life in the early 1900s.
Bologne: Symphony in D Major [11′]
Dett/arr. Kulesha: “His Song” from In the Bottoms [5′]
Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11 [40′]
