Oundjian Conducts Rachmaninoff

Wed, Jan 17–Sat, Jan 20, 2024 Roy Thomson Hall

Toronto Symphony Orchestra Conductor Emeritus Peter Oundjian leads Rachmaninoff’s Third Symphony, brimming with dream-like serenity and spirited Russian rhythms. John Adams’s jazz- influenced 2013 commission, Saxophone Concerto is an animated and energetic display of the instrument’s dexterity and range, performed by the incomparable Steven Banks in its Canadian Première, and a World Première by Toronto Symphony Orchestra NextGen Composer Katerina Gimon opens the performance—Under City Lights, Forgotten Stars—which inspires us to uncover the starry skies hidden beneath the brightness of our nighttime city skyscape.
