It’s all the lavish harmonies, rife emotions and vivid storytelling you can devour in this evening devoted to Russian genius. Hang on for Mikhail Glinka’s thrilling Overture to Russlan and Ludmilla, a firecracker of a start, before Dmitri Shostakovich’s heart-rending Violin Concerto. Demanding extraordinary skill and grace, the work’s dedicatee likened his part to a “pithy, Shakespearean role”—one played deftly by internationally acclaimed and Grammy Award-winning violinist James Ehnes. End on a sweet note with Sergei Rachmaninoff’s exquisite Second Symphony as it surges with haunting beauty and joyful redemption. Toronto Symphony Music Director Peter Oundjian returns for this three-course feast for the senses. Tickets are $40 to $110.
