Toronto Symphony Orchestra, orchestra
Jörg Widmann, clarinet
Peter Oundjian, conductor
The acclaimed Toronto Symphony Orchestra under its long-standing Music Director Peter Oundjian and Jörg Widmann are converging on the Wolkenturm for a compelling musical encounter. The Composer in Residence makes an appearance as the evening’s soloist in Weber’s world-famous First Clarinet Concerto, before going on to perform his own «Elegy» for Clarinet and Orchestra. Rachmaninov’s Symphonic Dances, written in affectionate remembrance of his native Russia and the last work to be completed by the composer, bring the concert to a romantic conclusion.
