Greatness Unveiled

8:00 pm, Friday, November 22, 2024

Guest Artist: Erika Raum, Violin

Join the Etobicoke Philharmonic on Friday, November 22, 2024 at Martingrove Collegiate Institute - 50 Winterton Drive, Etobicoke (map) - for Greatness Unveiled.

Sometimes ‘greatness’ is not immediately perceived. Each piece in this concert was initially met with skepticism or scorn but is now counted among the greatest music ever written. Beethoven’s innovatively long, large Eroica initially had mixed reviews but he considered it his most important symphony, as would future generations. Soloist Erika Raum will prove Tchaikovsky was right about his great Violin Concerto, though it took many years for audiences to agree. It wasn’t until 30 years after “Pecheurs de Perles" premiered, sadly long after Bizet's death, that it was embraced. Now it is his most popular opera after “Carmen”.
