Event type: All Ages
Alexander Tselyakov is originally from Russia, where he won or placed highly in major competitions (such as the Tchaikovsky Competition); he came to Canada in 1994 and first played in our Music Room in 1995. His wonderfully precise and insightful playing has won him a solid fanbase here and he has been back almost annually since.
The Toronto Philharmonia Quartet are core players from the orchestra of that title. Joyce Lai, violin; Adam Diderrich, second violin; Ian Clarke, viola; Andras Weber, cello. Three of the four are veterans - Joyce is its concertmaster.
This outstanding program features a fabulous work, the Brahms Piano Quartet no. 1 in g, op. 25. It is famed especially for its rocketing, joyous "gypsy rondo" finale. The other work is the big Dohnanyi Quintet for Piano and Strings, one of his most famed works - arguably, the greatest works in this form after Brahms. Interestingly, the Dohnanyi work is less "Hungarian" than the Brahms! But it's a fine work.
