VIOLINIST RUBEN KOSEMYAN TO PLAY VIVALDI'S FOUR SEASONS
Sinfonia Toronto has had to replace ailing violinist Jeonghwan Yoon for this Friday's performance of Vivaldi's 'The Four Seasons' in Glenn Gould Studio. On Monday Mr. Yoon was hospitalized in Seoul and is unable to travel to Canada. He will be replaced by Ruben Kosemyan (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fVQJy8ApE34&context=C38982b3ADOEgsToPDskKJXiZAuBJ4ecd8FRbcAGMI), a brilliant violinist in the Russian tradition who relocated to Toronto last year. All other aspects of the March 9 concert remain unchanged. In addition to Mr. Kosemyan Sinfonia Toronto Bassist Calum MacLeod will be performing Bottesini's brilliant Double Bass Concerto in B Minor and the orchestra will be performing works by Dvorak and Vania Angelova.
In making the announcement Nurhan Arman, Music Director of Sinfonia Toronto commented that "We are very fortunate that Ruben Kosemyan happened to be available and can step in on such short notice, allowing us to proceed with the concert's repertoire unchanged".
Violinist Ruben Kosemyan was born in Armenia and began his studies at the age of four under his father Alexander Kosemyan, violist of the renowned Komitas Quartet. In 1987 he moved to Moscow to continue his education at the Moscow Conservatory with professor Maya Glezarovahe. He has attended master-classes with Leonid Kogan, Igor Oistrach, Tibor Varga and Ruben Aharonyan of the Borodin Quartet. He was the recipient of the prestigious Vladimir Spivakov scholarship. He has appeared in concert in Germany, France, USA, Canada, Mexico and Russia, performing concertos by Brahms, Khachaturian, Tchaikovsky, Mendelssohn, Glazunov, Mozart, Bruch, Bach and many others.
