What’s happening: Conductor/violinist Vladimir Spivakov returns to Toronto to conduct the Moscow Virtuosi, and due to public demand, will play his violin. Pianist Alexander Ghindin also featured.
When & Where: Thursday, November 18 at 8 PM, at Roy Thomson Hall. Corner of King & Simcoe.
Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 9 “Jeunehomme” in E-flat Major, K.271 / Boccherini’s “Casa del Diavolo” / Shostakovich’s Chamber Symphony Op. 110 / Schnittke’s Sonata for violin, chamber orchestra, and harpsichord with Vladimir Spivakov
Why this is fabulous: Vladimir Spivakov is now primarily known as a conductor and humanitarian, but he originally made his career as a virtuosic violinist. He didn’t play the violin at his last Toronto concert, and due to public demand, he will this time in the Schnittke. Also, Alexander Ghindin is one hell of a pianist and he will perform Mozart’s “Jeunehomme” piano concerto.
