TSO On Demand: Beethoven Septet

Please note that we have paused the filming of our TSO On Demand series in accordance with newly announced COVID-19 restrictions for performing-arts venues. We look forward to resuming our recording at Roy Thomson Hall, and sharing updated performance release dates with you, as soon as we are able to do so. Thank you for your interest—we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Chamber music formed the soundtrack to most social occasions in Vienna at the turn of the 19th century. By virtue of their size, small ensembles could perform most anywhere with little set-up and without occupying much space, including in private residences. How fitting, then, that members of the TSO will perform Beethoven’s most crowd-pleasing contribution to the chamber music repertoire—his Septet—right inside your home! The only complete movement from the String Trio in B‑flat Major, D. 471, by Schubert, a devoted disciple of Beethoven’s, and a Ludwig-inspired reorchestration for septet of TSO RBC Affiliate Composer Emilie LeBel’s woodwind quintet, Haareis auf Morschem Holz (hair ice on rotten wood), round out the program.

This concert is 60–75 minutes in length and will feature approximately 20 musicians from the Orchestra. Learn more about the TSO On Demand series.
