The spirit of adventure shines bright in Dvořák’s soul-stirring Ninth Symphony, a musical melting pot of lively Czech rhythms and folk-infused melodies that captures the rugged beauty, unique flavour, and limitless potential of a new frontier. “There is not a better pianist in the world,” proclaims The New Criterion of Yefim Bronfman, and there is not a better showcase for his mastery than Beethoven’s stormy concerto. To start, marvel at the innovation of some of today’s brightest classical voices as the Orchestra performs new works by the TSO’s NextGen Composers that evoke the themes of conflict and reflection associated with Remembrance Day.
