Via Salzburg

  World-Renowned Cellist
joins Via Salzburg

March 10 & 11, 2005, 8 p.m.
Glenn Gould Studio

Toronto - Steven Isserlis, one of the most unique and accomplished cellists of our time, returns to perform as a soloist and with members of the Via Salzburg Chamber Orchestra on March 10 and 11, 2005, at 8 p.m. in Glenn Gould Studio, Canadian Broadcasting Centre, 250 Front Street West. The programme includes C.P.E. Bach’s Symphony No. 2 in B Flat Major, Bloch’s "From Jewish Life", Tchaikovsky’s Andante Cantabile for Cello and String Orchestra, Bargiel’s Octet for Strings, and Mendelssohn’s Symphony No. 7 in D Minor. Steve Isserlis last appeared on the Via Salzburg series in February 2002.

Acclaimed worldwide for his musicality and technique alike, Steven Isserlis is equally at home in chamber music, recital, or on the concert platform with many of the world’s most prestigious orchestras and conductors. Awarded a CBE in 1998 in recognition of services to music, he was named Classical Musician of the Year by London’s Time Out magazine in 2002.

Isserlis’ award-winning discography reflects his diverse musical interests, while his interest in musical education has led him to write a children’s book on music, Why Beethoven Threw the Stew (Faber’s); a second book is to be published in 2006.

Steven Isserlis plays the Feuermann Stradivarius of 1730, kindly loaned by The Nippon Music Foundation of Japan.

This performance is sponsored by Acura.

Via Salzburg was created in 1999 by Artistic Director and founder, violinist Mayumi Seiler, with the mission of presenting high-calibre chamber music concerts with an emphasis on strings. The mandate includes the goal of combining the best Canadian musicians with those from the international forum, while also encouraging educational outreach through the series’ activities. The name Via Salzburg refers to Ms. Seiler’s place of upbringing and consequent musical influences. It also suggests the international composition of the concerts. The artists and programmes presented are developed with a view to performing the best repertoire, raising the standard in the city, and giving the finest young performers a chance to grow. The Via Salzburg Chamber Orchestra is the resident ensemble that performs over half of the concerts. The other concerts involve smaller chamber groups in different combinations, some of whom may come from the ranks of the chamber orchestra.
