What's a vinyl renaissance? What happens when Handel's Messiah runs afoul of the rumba rhythm setting on a (gasp!) Hammond organ? What work does Marc-Andre Hamelin say he would be content to have on every recital program he plays? What are Steve Wallace's favourite fifty Christmas recordings? Why is violinist Daniel Hope celebrating Yehudi Menuhin's 100th birthday at Koerner Hall January 28? Answers to all these questions (and a whole lot more) in the Dec/Jan issue of The WholeNote.

BEETHOVEN SYMPHONY 9th BRUNO WEIL RUBY HUGHES MARY-ELLEN NESI COLIN BALZER SIMON TISCHLER CONDUCTOR SOPRANO MEZZO-SOPRANO TENOR BARITONE TAFELMUSIK BAROQUE ORCHESTRA AND CHAMBER CHOIR Feb 4-7, 2016 | Koerner Hall (KH) Beethoven’s remarkable final symphony is a celebration of the human spirit culminating in the legendary and exhilarating “Ode to Joy.” This Tafelmusik presentation heralds the return of German conductor and long-term friend, Bruno Weil. The programme also features our Chamber Choir in Rheinberger’s Abendlied, Brahms’ Warum ist das Licht gegeben, and a NEW Tafelmusik choral commission, directed by Ivars Taurins. In the New Year VIVALDI L’ESTRO ARMONICO Jan 20-24, 2016 Trinity-St. Paul’s Centre, Jeanne Lamon Hall (TSP) Vivaldi’s concert collection L’estro armonico (Harmonic fancy) took 18th-century Europe by storm: works of astonishing creativity and energy, they excited musicians, composers, and audiences alike. Romanian violinist Mira Glodeanu makes her Tafelmusik debut as guest director and soloist in a programme that features several of Vivaldi’s groundbreaking concertos, as well as works inspired by Vivaldi’s “fancy,” including Giovanni Antonio Guido’s Scherzi armonici, depicting the four seasons.
