Notes and Editorial Reviews

Chamber Suite features the rarely recorded Sextet in D major for Piano and Strings, Op. 110 by Felix Mendelssohn as well as Max Bruch’s Trio in C minor, Op. 5. It also includes the world premiere recordings of Srul Irving Glick’s The Old Toronto Klezmer Suite for Piano and Strings. When the late Srul Irving Glick spoke with leader Catherine Wilson about writing a work for the Ensemble Vivant. Catherine suggested a quintet for piano, violin, viola, cello and double bass. Of the piece, Glick wrote “this work is based on klezmer style in a chamber music idiom. I wanted to express my deep love for the city of Toronto. I wrote this quintet for pianist Catherine Wilson and her Friends, performing the violin, viola, cello and double bass. Each Read more movement reflects reminiscences of some aspect of my growing up in Toronto.” Read less
