Media High Notes: January 2023

February 13, 2023

From previews to reviews to interviews and more, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra regularly receives interesting and insightful media coverage from a wide variety of sources. Here’s a summary of our most recent and notable press: 

Our first concert program of 2023, the all-but-sold-out Mozart Requiem, garnered rave reviews from La Scena Musicale’s Joseph So, who called the experience “bliss,” and barczablog’s Leslie Barcza, who said the performance was “truly brilliant.”

Canadian mezzo-soprano Susan Platts was one of the extraordinary soloists in our Mozart Requiem performances, and, in advance of the concert, Paula Citron of Ludwig van Toronto interviewed Platts about her celebrated career and her cookbook, Aria Ready For Dessert?

Leading up to superstar cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason’s supremely buzz-worthy début with the TSO, The Globe and Mail published a Q&A with the young artist, conducted by Michael Zarathus-Cook. 

And our performances of Sheku Kanneh-Mason Plays Elgar were glowingly received by the Toronto Star’s Joshua Chong, Ludwig van Toronto’s Joseph So, and smART Magazine’s Emma Schmeidecke—who called the event “Kanneh-magic.”

We recently welcomed close to 10,000 GTA students to Roy Thomson Hall for The Hockey Sweater—a concert based on Roch Carrier’s quintessential Canadian story—led by RBC Resident Conductor Trevor Wilson, who previewed the program on The Lane School of Music’s Kids Q The Music podcast.

In The Globe and Mail’s roundup of notable events in the “national classical and opera calendar,” Brad Wheeler included Songs for Murdered Sisters, the powerful song cycle, composed by Jake Heggie with text by Margaret Atwood, that the National Arts Centre Orchestra recently performed as part of its annual “orchestra exchange” with the TSO.
