Toronto Chamber Orchestra

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

The Toronto Chamber Orchestra (formerly the Toronto Camerata) was founded by violinist and conductor Kevin Mallon.

Style

The orchestra reflects the period instrument Aradia Ensemble. Orchestra members play baroque instruments and perform in musical styles ranging from the 18th century to the present. The orchestras overall approach focuses on the sound of period instruments.

Recordings

The orchestra has recorded fifteen CDs for the Naxos label (symphonies of Wenzel Pichl, Leopold Mozart, Franz Ignaz Beck, Johann Baptist Wanhal, Karl von Ordóñez and overtures by Domenico Cimarosa, as well as three CDs of symphonies of Joseph Haydn). In addition the orchestra has embarked on a series of new commissions, collaborating with bassoonist Nadina Mackie Jackson and trumpeter Guy Few. This collaboration has resulted in two CD recordings.

Appearances

Principal members of the Toronto Chamber Orchestra also perform with the Toronto Symphony, the Canadian Opera Orchestra, the Canadian Ballet Orchestra, Tafelmusik and the Aradia Ensemble. The orchestra has performed under guest conductors Alan Trudel and Nicholas McGegan.
