  • Venue: Mazzoleni Concert Hall
  • Series: Student Concerts, Mazzoleni Masters
  • Genre: Classical
  • Presenter: The Royal Conservatory

The ARC Ensemble performs Erich Wolfgang Korngold’s extravagantly lush Piano Quintet, and works for string quartet and clarinet by his Viennese contemporary Ernest Kanitz. Both settled in Los Angeles during the 1930s, where Korngold became the most celebrated film composer of the day and Kanitz became a legendary teacher at the University of Southern California.

Comprised of the senior faculty of The Royal Conservatory's Glenn Gould School, with special guests drawn from the organization's most accomplished students and alumni, the three-time Grammy Award nominated ARC Ensemble is among Canada's most distinguished cultural ambassadors. Performing a wide range of music, its focus remains the research and recovery of works that were suppressed and marginalized under the 20th century's repressive regimes. A growing number of previously unknown masterworks are rejoining the repertoire as a result of the ARC Ensemble's work.
