ARTISTS

Art of Time Ensemble

Renowned concert pianist Andrew Burashko formed Art of Time Ensemble in 1998 by inviting a group of like-minded musicians and prominent figures in dance, theatre and other art forms to perform one-off concerts in Toronto. The company has gone on to become a leader in Toronto’s vibrant performing arts scene, through its subscription season at the Harbourfront Centre Theatre, regular appearances at Koerner Hall, album releases, performances with leading Canadian orchestras, and the tours of its unique offerings to dozens of cities throughout Canada and the United States.

 


 

ANDREW BURASHKO is the founder and creative force behind Art of Time Ensemble. Born in Moscow, Burashko trained as a concert pianist across North America, making his solo debut with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra at the age of 17.  As a soloist, Burashko performed with some of the world’s most renowned conductors, including Marin Alsop, Sir Andrew Davis, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Jukka-Pekka Saraste, and Pinchas Zukerman. His eclectic musical interests have led him more recently to share the stage with such diverse artists as Branford Marsalis, Brent Carver, and Madeleine Peyroux. In 1998, Burashko formed the Art of Time Ensemble to create unique concerts that ignore the barriers between genres and disciplines, with the aim of exposing audiences to a broad range of artistic possibilities. Under Burashko’s direction, Art of Time Ensemble has become a Canadian destination for today’s most accomplished artists working in music, dance, theatre, film and literature. In addition to their annual concert series in Toronto, Art of Time Ensemble has toured extensively throughout Canada and the United States, as well as in Russia and Finland.
