The Glory of Baroque Concerti


'The Glory of Baroque Concerti' is Sinfonia Toronto's warm and colourful program to melt the midwinter chill. This Masterpiece Series concert will take place on Friday, February 6, 2009 at 8 pm in Grace Church on-the-Hill (300 Lonsdale Road).

Conductor Nurhan Arman will lead the concert that will feature several members of the orchestra in brilliant baroque concertos. Canada will be well represented among the baroque masters as Violist Julian Knight will play the world-premiere of a Viola Concerto written in a baroque style by Toronto composer Ronald Royer.

Other soloists will be Xiaohan Guo in Bach's E Major Violin Concerto; Violinist Phoebe Tsang in Vitali's Chaconne; Cellist Andras Weber in a brilliant Tartini concerto. Sinfonia Toronto's concertmaster Mary-Elizabeth Brown will team up with Emily Hau in Bach's Double Concerto in D Minor.

In commenting on the program Nurhan Arman said "It is a brilliant program that will feature some incredible music and highlight the virtuosity of our orchestra's musicians as five of them will be appearing as soloists. Also of great interest is the creation of a neo-baroque viola concerto by our composer-in-residence Ronald Royer."

There will be a free post-concert reception, giving audience members a chance to meet members of the orchestra, the conductor and the soloist.

Online discount tickets are $35 adult, $27 senior, $7 student (16-29) and can be purchased at or at regular price by phone 416-499-0403 or at the door.
