Agony and Ecstasy

8:00 pm, Friday, March 21, 2025

Join the Etobicoke Philharmonic on Friday, March 21, 2025 at Martingrove Collegiate Institute - 50 Winterton Drive, Etobicoke (map) - for Agony and Ecstasy.

Deeply moving works that will be cathartic for you, as they were for their composers across three different centuries. Brahms said his Tragic Overture “weeps” and, 140 years later, Simon Rivet elicits the same feeling in his hauntingly beautiful “Ellipse of a Cry”. Shostakovich untangles a range of powerful emotions as a Russian under Stalin through his Symphony No. 10.

Johannes Brahms
Tragic Overture, Op. 81
Simon Rivet
Ellipse of a Cry
Dmitri Shostakovich
Symphony No. 10 in E minor, Op. 93
