January 2018 at the TSO: Planet Mozart

December 13, 2017

From The Planets to the Jupiter Symphony, January brings stellar concerts, with the Mozart@262 Festival and brilliant guest artists including Bernard Labadie, Charles Richard-Hamelin, John Storgårds, and Ingrid Fliter.

In January 2018, Mozart rules at the Toronto Symphony Orchestra (TSO)! To celebrate the 262nd anniversary of the great composer’s birth, TSO Music Director Peter Oundjian and Canadian conductor Bernard Labadie are co-curating the Mozart@262 Festival—four compelling programs presented at three different venues.

Mozart@262 Festival: January 10–21, 2018

January 25–27, guest conductor John Storgårds returns to the TSO for a program that includes John Estacio’s stunning Trumpet Concerto, showcasing the talent of TSO Principal Trumpet Andrew McCandless, and the Canadian Première of Stravinsky’s recently rediscovered Funeral Song—a piece he composed in memory of his teacher, Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov. The concert concludes with the celestial music of Gustav Holst—the magnificent suite, The Planets.

On January 31 & February 2, Slovak conductor Juraj Valčuha makes his TSO début with A European Romance. The concert opens with The Enchanted Lake by Liadov, followed by Falla’s evocative Nights in the Gardens of Spain, featuring Argentine pianist Ingrid Fliter. Valčuha also leads the TSO in irresistible works by R. Strauss: Don Juan and the exquisite suite from Der Rosenkavalier.
