TICKETS will be available at the door - doors open at 3 PM
Koffler Members $20 | General $25
The final concert of the 2012-13 season features baroque music performed in the beautiful ballroom of Toronto’s historic Victorian-turned-Art hotel, the Gladstone. The program includes The Art of Fugue by J.S.Bach, the Adagio and Fugue by Mozart and the Grosse Fuge (Great Fugue) by Beethoven, plus a violin concerto by Bach, featuring Jacques Israelievitch on violin.
Bach was the master of the musical form called fugue, a very difficult composition technique that every composer since Bach has tried to master, not always successfully. Mozart and Beethoven are two of the successful ones.
The Koffler Chamber Orchestra is the only one of its kind in Toronto, comprising some of the city’s most well-regarded professional musicians performing with community members and music students under the direction of acclaimed violinist and concertmaster Jacques Israelievitch.
