Even the thunder will be clapping.
Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra aren’t just coming to Toronto… they’re more astounding than ever.
It’s been said they’re the most magnetic conductor and entrancing orchestra anywhere. If you’ve caught them here or anywhere else in the world (including on-line and live streaming), you know just what a chest-thumping, heart-rending, mind-boggling performance they can create.
If you’ve missed them, well… some background to the ardor: Valery Gergiev conducts the Mariinsky Orchestra (which used to be called the Kirov) of St. Petersburg. Gergiev also directs the London Symphony Orchestra and is the principal guest conductor of the Metropolitan Opera, and last year was named one of Time Magazine’s One Hundred Most Influential People in the World.
Proof of charisma? Check out the Youtube video on this link: Valery Gergiev.
Come Friday, October 21st at Roy Thomson Hall, you’ll be able to enjoy what all the clamor is about. Especially when you hear their program of Russian masterworks:
Stravinsky: Firebird Suite
Prokofiev: Piano Concerto No. 3 (Alexander Toradze, piano)
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 1
