Oundjian Conducts Brahms

Wednesday, June 1–Saturday, June 4, 2022 Roy Thomson Hall
Sunday, June 5, 2022 George Weston Recital Hall

Small phrases blossom into statements of grand, poetic power in Brahms’s fourth and final symphony, a monument to the composer’s mastery which incorporates intricate techniques of Bach and the Baroque Era. A child prodigy, world-class pianist, and trailblazing composer, Clara Schumann is one of 19th century music’s most remarkable and fascinating figures. She wrote her Piano Concerto at the age of fourteen to showcase her own virtuosity, and it’s the perfect vehicle for the enormous talents of Toronto-born pianist Tony Siqi Yun, gold medalist at the first China International Music Competition in 2019. Conductor Emeritus Peter Oundjian leads these performances, which begin with Spotlight Artist Samy Moussa’s atmospheric Nocturne.

The June 2 performance is generously supported by Blake and Belinda Goldring.

The June 4 performance is generously supported by the Estate of James Drewry Stewart.

The June 5 performance is generously supported by Jim Fleck.
