Description:

I'm Austrian Canadain

The delights and treasures of both Austria and Canada are on full display as we travel between and mingle with these two worlds. Bookended by two of Austria’s musical greats, Haydn and Mozart, this programme weaves its way through three distinct Canadian styles. Have you ever heard a timpani concerto live? Have you ever heard a Canadian timpani concerto live in an old Austrian style with a modern twist? Maya Badian’s ‘Concerto Grosso for Timpani and Trumpet Obligato’ featuring Ed Reifel as the soloist fits the bill! ‘Disquiet’ by Jocelyn Morlock then makes the dramatic shift to the ethereally beautiful. In the ultimate example of mixing two musical cultures, Aaron Gervais’ ‘Concerto for Mozart Piano Videos’ then brings the virtuosic keyboard playing of soloist Greg Oh to visual life with instantaneous video projections. Start the whole evening off with the delightful ‘Lo Speziale Overture’ by Haydn and finish with the crowning glory of Mozart’s symphonic writing, his ‘Jupiter’ Symphony #41, and you have a feast of Canadian and Austrian delights sure to satisfy the hungriest of concert goers.

The concert will be held February 7, 2013 at 8 p.m., at Trinity-St Paul’s-Centre, 427 Bloor St. W.
