Emanuel Ax Plays Brahms

For Brahms, a concerto called for every bit as much depth, ingenuity, and imagination as a symphony. Piano Concerto No. 2 is a big, bold piece that has everything: warmth, drama, excitement, and beauty.

Come for: Emanuel Ax, an audience favourite who has a long and accomplished relationship with the TSO, plays Brahms’s magnificent Piano Concerto No. 2.

And more: Two symphonies, separated in time by 200 years: one a cheerful masterpiece of the eighteenth-century Classical style; the other a fascinating Canadian piece from our own time, written by the TSO’s Composer Advisor.

F’D Up

F’d Up! aims to explore the tension between these new directions that redefine the concept of “fibre art” based on examples of significant artists working in North America today. Based upon experimentation, these works differentiate the protagonists from decades before, thereby illustrating how a new vocabulary is created as the result of a formative radical gesture.

Franco Arcieri: Astral Noise

Emerging artist Franco Arcieri investigates motion and movement with the use of fabric as a means of concealing
his body. Appearing as an achetype and performing in an almost dreamlike trance, the artist plays with our memory and
senses. Arcieri employs sculpture, video and sound to create an encounter with the viewer through an innovative fibre-based
performance.

David Bowie Is

Straight from London’s Victoria and Albert Museum, North America’s debut of hit exhibition includes culture icon’s original stage costumes, instruments, album art and music videos.

This fall the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) offers North America its first chance to take an exciting odyssey through the world of pioneering artist David Bowie—musician, performer and style icon—in the acclaimed exhibition David Bowie is, direct from the Victoria and Albert (V&A) Museum in London, England. Spanning five decades and featuring more than 300 objects from Bowie’s personal archive, the multi-media show exposes the groundbreaking artist’s collaborations in the fields of fashion, sound, theatre, art and film. David Bowie is will open on Sept. 25, 2013 and runs to Nov. 27, 2013, giving Toronto two full months to live the experience. The AGO is the exhibition’s first stop on its world tour.

Acclaimed by the New York Times as “united in sound and vision in a way rarely seen in a museum,” David Bowie is marks the first international exhibition devoted to the British-born musician and performer (born David Robert Jones in 1947), who has sold more than 140 million albums to date throughout his genre-defying career. Organized thematically, the show immerses visitors in a spectacular and interactive trip through Bowie’s numerous personae and legendary performances, with particular attention paid to his artistic influences. His experiments with Surrealism, German Expressionism, Music Hall, mime and Japanese Kabuki performance are all explored in an explosion of colour, light and sound.
