CBC Glenn Gould Studio

250 Front St. W, Toronto

Xiao Ming (SQ)

Maestro Xiao Ming makes his Canadian début at the CBC Glenn Gould Studio in an evening of music to unite us all. Dance-like themes and lyrical folk melodies dominate Prokofiev’s Russian Overture – a charismatic miniature symphony for a zealous large-scale orchestra. American violinist Andrew Sords masterfully interprets boisterous reels and tuneful airs in the charming Scottish Fantasy by Max Bruch. Prokofiev’s Symphony No. 7 is a memoir of fantasy and imagination, encompassing the composer’s life in his final farewell to symphonic form.
