TSO On Demand: Vivaldi’s Four Seasons

Year after year, season after season, the music of Vivaldi blooms in perennial splendour. “Full of passionate virtuosity yet finely nuanced in his playing,” (Toronto Star) Concertmaster Jonathan Crow performs as soloist and leads his TSO colleagues in Vivaldi’s timeless The Four Seasons. He also leads two dynamic works by living composers—“Coqueteos” from Gabriela Lena Frank’s melodic Leyendas: An Andean Walkabout and Sri Lankan–born Canadian composer Dinuk Wijeratne’s poetic, JUNO Award–winning “A letter from the After-life” from Two Pop Songs on Antique Poems.

This concert is approximately 60 minutes in length and features 21 musicians from the Orchestra.

This recording is generously supported by Indra and Rags Davloor.


Our TSO On Demand series was filmed in strict accordance with COVID-19 government restrictions for performing-arts venues, prioritizing the health and safety of artists and staff. You will notice that musicians are wearing masks, there are plexiglass barriers between brass and woodwind instruments, and all artists are two metres apart.
