“Canadian cellist Winona Zelenka has been showcasing her virtuosity with orchestras across Canada and the world. She is joining us for our French-inspired programme, and we are not cutting down on the champagne on this one! This programme will feature the Saint-Saëns cello concerto as well as Beethoven’s 3rd symphony, Eroica, which was originally dedicated to Napoleon. Also, I am excited to share the Carnival Overture by Canadian composer and my composition teacher at the University of Toronto, Oskar Morawetz. I have lots of great stories to share about this brilliant man.” – Maestro Claudio Vena
Trio Arkel presents Season 3! Three concerts to inspire and delight, with renowned Canadian guest artists and eclectic repertoire.
Starting in 2016 we have a new home! Trinity St.Paul Centre, in the heart of Toronto and highly accessible by public transport, is the newly renovated and acoustically acclaimed home of choice for many ensembles in Toronto, and it is now ours.
427 Bloor St.W, at Spadina station.
Tickets can be bought at the door or online at brownpapertickets.com under concert title.
"CONNECTIONS", French music for cello and piano with Connie Shih, is now available on Marquis Classics.
"Zelenka teases a seemingly infinite range of sounds from her bow, and both artists display a deceptively easy virtuosity....This record very much deserves to be on any cello lover’s playlist."
Bach Suites 1, 3 and 6 at Sharon Temple, an acoustically and physically wonderful space that also does justice to the master with its history of spiritual freedom and dedication to humanity.
