“...The chamber music recital is not just alive, it’s kicking.” (musicaltoronto.org) A legacy organization in classical music, Music Toronto presents the world’s best chamber ensembles and pianists. A truly international series, we open with Italy’s premiere Quartetto di Cremona, making their Toronto debut. We specialize in string quartets: the Vision (Berlin - also a debut), the Miró (US), the Schumann (Germany), the Pavel Haas (Czech Republic) and the Ebene (France). Of course, we always welcome back our home-grown favourites, the St. Lawrence Quartet and the Gryphon Trio. Our piano series is equally eclectic – and compelling. Piano 6 New Generation brings 6 brilliant young Canadian pianists to our stage. The distinguished British pianist Jonathan Plowright, the electrifying Swiss pianist Francesco Piemontesi, Quebec’s grand master André Laplante, and the effortlessly virtuosic young British pianist Benjamin Grosvenor (also one of our favourites) complete the season. Great music of five centuries, from Haydn to Hétu; artists new and familiar, extraordinary music-making: only the finest, only at Music Toronto. Join the best audience in the city for these great concerts.
