WOMEN’S MUSICAL CLUB OF TORONTO | Cellodrama!

$45

Simon Fryer with guest cellists Ariel Barnes, Roman Borys, David Hetherington, Paul Widner, Thomas Wiebe, Leanne Zacharias, and Winona Zelenka, and special guest, Sarah Slean, soprano.

May 3, 2018 | 1.30 pm | Walter Hall, University of Toronto

Programme:

Sonata for 2 cellos in G major                                      Jean Barrière
Capriccio per Siegfried Palm for solo cello                    Krzystof Penderecki
The Violet Hour for 4 cellos                                          Jocelyn Morlock
Chaconne from Violin Partita in D minor BWV 1004      J.S. Bach (arr. 4 cellos, Lazlo Varga)
WMCT Commission for 8 cellos                                     Kelly-Marie Murphy
Bohemian Rhapsody                                                    Queen (arr. 4 cellos and piano, Nick Byrne)
Bachianas Brasileiras #5                                               Heitor Villa-Lobos

I invite you to join me and my guests to celebrate my 10th season as WMCT Artistic Director with a multi-cello spectacular. My very favorite Canadian cellists and I play music from Barrière to Penderecki and Queen to J.S. Bach scored for from one to eight cellos. Not only that: the supremely versatile and talented Sarah Slean will be with us for Villa-Lobos; and the WMCT has commissioned award-winning composer Kelly-Marie Murphy to write a new eight-cello work for première this afternoon. Imagine the beauty of a solo cello performance, then multiply that by eight – what could be better?
