VC LIVE | Andrei Feher Conducts Glenn Gould School's Royal Conservatory Orchestra

We're coming to you from Toronto, Canada with The Royal Conservatory Orchestra’s first orchestral performance in front of a live audience since February 2019

Wednesday December 31st, 1969 07:00pm
HOSTED BY:
SET REMINDER

We're coming to you from Toronto, Canada with The Royal Conservatory Orchestra’s first orchestral performance in front of a live audience since February 2019

 

Presented in association with the Bureau du Québec, today’s program, features Aaron Copland’s “Overture from Fanfare for the Common Man” coupled with contemporary American composer Joan Tower’s “Overture from Fanfare for the Uncommon Woman” — and Beethoven’s 3rd “Eroica” Symphony

Tower's six Fanfares were written between 1987 and 2014 and are often viewed as a feminist counterpoint to Copland’s iconic concert opener. Identical in instrumentation to and containing musical quotes from Copland’s work, which was written one year earlier in 1986, Tower's respectful antithesis was immediately embraced as a “historic feminist statement in music."

"It’s for women who take risks and are adventurous,” said Joan Tower at the premiere, who dedicated the work to conductor Marin Alsop.

This performance is the school's first orchestral performance in front of a live audience since February 2020.
