premiere of op online season • PIANIST ALJOŠA JURINIĆ
BEETHOVEN MONUMENT • A CELEBRATION OF BEETHOVEN: HIS 250th ANNIVERSARY

Pianist Aljoša Jurinić presents a recital of phenomenal music and of exceptional interest in this Beethoven celebratory period. The great Romantic composers Schumann, Mendelssohn and Liszt had tremendous respect for this giant of 19th Century music. They contributed financially and musically to an actual "Beethoven Monument" which was built and is still standing to this day in Bonn, Germany, Beethoven’s birthplace. The large bronze statue of Ludwig van Beethoven was unveiled on 12 August 1845, in honour of the 75th anniversary of the composer's birth.
We look forward to welcoming Mr. Jurinić on-stage live in Tchaikovsky’s famed Concerto No.1 when Ontario Philharmonic makes its post-Covid return.
