Gustavo Gimeno Conducts The Firebird
The Toronto Symphony Orchestra’s fantastic 2018/19 concert season culminates with an explosive orchestral coda, as Gustavo Gimeno, the TSO's next Music Director, returns to the podium to lead the Orchestra in the ever-popular suite from Stravinsky’s blazing, fairy-tale-inspired ballet. Sibelius’s virtuosic Violin Concerto—a majestically lyrical evocation of the North, and the only concerto he ever composed—features the TSO’s supremely talented Concertmaster, Jonathan Crow, as soloist. Prokofiev’s light and spirited First Symphony, “Classical”, rounds out this final program. (Pictured: Gustavo Gimeno)
