Cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras

Tchaikovsky & Ravel

Wed, April 26–Sat, April 29, 2023 Roy Thomson Hall

An homage to the elegant style of Mozart, Tchaikovsky’s charming and tuneful Variations on a Rococo Theme offers an exhilarating showcase for the talents of Canadian cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras. Acclaimed French conductor Fabien Gabel shares the evocative music of Camille Pépin and Stravinsky. And live music doesn’t get any more exciting than Ravel’s sensuous and shimmering Daphnis et Chloé, which opens with the most glorious “musical sunrise” ever written, and ends in a barely contained whirlwind guaranteed to bring down the house.

There's a free pre-concert performance by the TSO Chamber Soloists before the Friday, April 28 performance. See the TSO Camber Soloists page for more information.
