George Weston Recital Hall
Conductor Bernard Labadie showcases the genius of Joseph Haydn in this inviting programme. It features one of this master symphonist's most delightful creations, nick-named "The Clock" for the "tick-tock" sounds in the second movement. Soloist Alexandre Tharaud performs the suave Concerto in D Major, which climaxes in a flashing, Hungarian-flavoured finale. In his cheerful Symphony No. 1, Beethoven showed how much he learned from Haydn, his teacher-but he began blazing his own trail, as well.
Alexandre Tharaud will be signing CDs post concert on November 24 in the North Lobby.
Nov 25 at the George Weston Recital Hall located at 5040 Yonge Street. To purchase tickets by phone call Ticketmaster at 1.855.985.ARTS (2787)
