Raw Classical

We were moved today by the unexpected rawness of Ezra Azmon’s viola-playing on the corner of Walmer and Bloor, just outside the gray brick of the Shopper’s Drug Mart. I had read about him in a Star article and I’m glad to have finally heard him live.

Something about the sound of the bow urgently clinging to the strings with each gesture made every phrase more palpable. Azmon’s music was a salve for the heavy tiredness of the last few weeks.
