A program containing quintets by Brahms andDvořák is a tantalizing prospect.If having concertmaster Jonathan Crow and other TSO membersparticipating in TSM weren’t enough, the entire orchestra will closeout the festival August 12 in their first ever concert in Koerner Hallwith a preview of their upcoming European tour which includesClaude Vivier’s Orion. “I have the impression that I’m sitting still onan airplane,” Vivier wrote, describing the piece. “I remain in the sameplace and yet I go from Cairo to Kuala Lumpur.” The TSO is off toVienna, Amsterdam, Wiesbaden, Helsinki and Reykjavik.Le Festival de Lanaudière bills itself as the largest festival of classicalmusic in Canada. Located in Joliette, about an hour northwestof Montreal, it includes many artists who rarely travel to Toronto, aswell as others who do. Pianists Alain Lefèvre (whose recital July 8features all 24 Chopin preludes and Ravel’s La Valse) and Dejan Lazić(in a program July 14 ranging from C.P.E. Bach and Scarlatti to Brittenand Bartók) fall into the former category while Kristian Bezuidenhout,who recently appeared here with Tafelmusik performing a Mozartpiano concerto, gives two recitals (July 15 and 17) devoted to eightMozart sonatas on a fortepiano built in the late 18th century aroundthe time of the composer’s death.Beatrice Rana plays the same recital in Lanaudière as in Toronto,two days later. Toronto native Stewart Goodyear offers a variedprogram July 22 of Berg’s Sonata No.1, Bach’s French Suite No.5 andBeethoven’s Diabelli Variations.The marvellous Jennifer Koh, whose memorable appearance as theviolin-playing Einstein in the 2012 Luminato production of PhilipGlass’ Einstein on the Beach was the heart of the opera, performstwo Bach sonatas, Berio Sequenza VIII and John Zorn’s Passagenon July 28.No less enticing is the July 20 Orford Six Pianos concert whichincludes Mussorgsky’s A Night on Bald Mountain and Pictures at anExhibition, Ravel’s Pavane pour une enfant défunte and Mère l’oyeas well as two suites by Khatchaturian. Paavo Järvi and Die DeutscheKammerphilharmonie Bremen clearly love Brahms.
