PROKOFIEV AND BRUCH
Saturday, June 24, 2023 at 8 p.m.
CBC Glenn Gould Studio
250 Front St. W, Toronto
Maestro Bartosz Żurakowski 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 Ouverture russe – 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.
