TRIO ARKEL presents a program of chamber music by composers who took a chance on love; for some it worked out, and for others....not so much. Their stories are full of intrigue and romance, and the passion lives on in their music.
Our guest star is oboist Sarah Jeffrey, Principal Oboe of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra. She joins us for Mozart's Oboe Quartet and Britten's Phantasy Quartet, which is not often heard. In between these treats are the string trios of Lennox Berkeley and Ernst von Dohnányi, who are the lovers of the day.
Trio Arkel is Marie Berard, Concertmaster of the Canadian Opera Company Orchestra; Teng Li, Principal Viola of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, and Winona Zelenka, Assistant Principal Cellist of the Toronto Symphony Orchestra.
