CHORAL CONCERT, with host Peter Togni Sunday, January 6, 2013 9:00 - 11:00 am, (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2

Choral Concert presents “Beethoven bookends”

Choral Concert starts with a bang this week, with the opening crash of the finale of Beethoven’s ninth symphony.  It’s the first of 2 great choral works created by Ludwig von Beethoven that you will hear on choral concert this week. 

We’ll start the show with a live performance of the finale of the 9th Symphony with Toronto’s
Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir, and finish with the Choral Fantasy in a performance with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Mendelssohn Choir, and pianist Anton Kuerti.

In between these two great masterworks you will also hear a beautiful rendition of Vivaldi’s Gloria with the Munich Pro Arte Orchestra.

Don’t forget that CBCMUSIC.CA has lots to offer for classical music lovers, there are 10 classical streams, available 24 / 7. You can also check out the Choral Concert blog plus extensive videos and concerts in all genres.
