Choral Concert starts with a bang this week, with the opening crash of the finale of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. It’s performed by Toronto’s original-instrument group, the Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra and Chamber Choir. Their period instruments give the opening chords a raw, immediate sound in this performance recorded at Toronto’s Koerner Hall in 2011.

At the close of the show, you’ll hear another choral work by Beethoven: his Choral Fantasy, performed by the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir, and pianist Anton Kuerti.

In between the bookends of these two masterworks, you will hear a beautiful rendition of Vivaldi’s Gloria with the Munich Pro Arte Orchestra.

Choral Concert, the “this one begins with a bang” edition. Sunday, Jan. 6, 2013, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m., (9:30 - 11:30 NT) on CBC Radio 2.
