Tafelmusik presents...

A Joyous Welcome

Happening in the George Weston Recital Hall

Directed by Elisa Citterio

Join Tafelmusik’s new Music Director Elisa Citterio for this gala season opening concert featuring performances of Handel, Vivaldi, and Rameau.

“Elisa Citterio tackled the endlessly unfolding, seemingly unstoppable invention … with infectious enthusiasm.” – The Scotsman

A late summer breeze blows into this gala opening concert with a performance of Vivaldi’s “Summer,” the first in a complete cycle of his The Four Seasons performed this year, showcasing our dynamic new leader.

The breeze is not only in the atmosphere—the wind instruments are out in force for the large, brassy orchestra required in Handel’s festive Concerto a due cori, a work that befits this grand occasion as we joyfully celebrate Tafelmusik’s new beginnings under Citterio’s high-energy direction.


Program includes:

Handel Concerto a due cori in F Major, HWV 333
Corelli Concerto grosso in C Major, op. 6, no. 10
Vivaldi “Summer” from The Four Seasons (Elisa Citterio, violin soloist)
Vivaldi Concerto in F Major con molti strumenti, RV 569 (Elisa Citterio, violin soloist)
Rameau Suite from Les Boréades
