Mendelssohn’s immensely popular Violin Concerto is beautifully interpreted by rising Canadian talent Timothy Chooi. A prolific composer, Haydn’s No. 99, one of the famed “London Symphonies”, provides a harmonious interlude before Shostakovich’s upbeat, almost breezy Ninth Symphony, a work he personally considered “a joyful little piece,” brings the evening to a glorious crescendo.
