Concert Notes ...

Concert Notes ... continued Symphony Orchestra. There are many more very good and very interesting concerts at the Faculty of Music in October - too many to mention them all, but definitely worth finding in our concert listings section. GREAT ROMANTICS fESTIVAL Hamilton's Great R'illmantics Festival, October 7 to 10, an annual event organized by Professor Alan Walker of McMaster University, is a fascinating musical and intellectual feast of concerts, lectures and discussions, with well-placed moments of relaxation in the form of receptions and banquets. Performers from all over the .world consider it a privilege to play at this gathering, and the rest of us should consider ourselves privileged that it occurs in our own backyard so to speak. For further information, the festival can be contscted at 905-529-7070 ext.23674. If you are not fortunate enough to be able to spend four stimulating days in . Hamilton, a taste of the Festival will be available in Toronto on October 2 when English pianist, Melanie Spanswick, will give a recital in Toronto at Temple Baptist Church. fiRST CANADIAN CHOPIN CoMPETITION This year is the 150th anniversary of the death of one of those great romantics, Frederic Chopin, and so has been declared "Chopin Year" by UNESCO. It is also the year of Canada's first Chopin Competition, which will take place at the John Paul II Polish Cultural Centre in Mississauga with a gala final concert on October 23 at the Glenn Gould Studio. What a great opportunity to hear the best young pianists from all over Canada. lANDSMAN, ORLOFF & TURINI While every month is a good month for . chamber music in Toronto, this October lppears to be especially good, in part because of a concert that brings together three of the best musicians that three cities have to offer: Montreal violinist, Vladimir Landsman, London (Ontario) pianist, Ronald Turini, and Toronto cellist, Vladimir Orloff. They will perform three pillars of the repertoire, the Tchaikovsky Trio Op. 50, the Beethoven violin sonata, Op. 30 #33 and the Brahms cello sonata, Qp. 38, at the Glenn Gould Studio on October 16. MUSIC IN THE SUBURBS. Last month we mentioned Artword Theatre's Rush Hour concerts, the second of . which will be on October 27 at 6:00, · designed for suburbanites who work downtown. There is a growing number of reaily excellent concerts in the suburbs, which shows that there is considerable interest in good music wherever you live.
