A new artistic director and principal conductor took up duties in the fall of 1975. Andrew Davis (b Ashridge, Hertfordshire, England, 2 Feb 1944) was approximately the same age Seiji Ozawa had been at the time of his appointment. Equally vibrant in personality, he had a more versatile repertoire and a cooler and perhaps tidier approach to performance. His concerts in the first few seasons broadened Toronto's exposure to orchestral music by presenting Schoenberg and Berg works previously unplayed in Toronto, the entire cycle of Stravinsky ballets, a Borodin cycle (later recorded), and the cycle of the Mahler symphonies. Also included was a strong emphasis on English composers - Elgar in particular, but also Britten and Tippett. The Canadian premiere of Tippett's Fourth Symphony (1979) and the North American premiere of his Triple Concerto (1980) were highlights. Davis's several appearances as soloist-conductor (piano, harpsichord) also enhanced the programs, and, more than any TS music director since MacMillan, Davis strengthened long established ties with the Toronto Mendelssohn Choir by emphasizing choral-orchestral repertoire.

Ancerl's life is at least as interesting as his music. While the biographies of many conductors read like a charmed tour of high culture, Ancerl's was quite different. The only member of his family to survive the Holocaust, his unstinting devotion to the culture of his beloved Czechoslovakia was repaid by being driven into exile upon the 1968 Communist occupation. But throughout was a constant allegiance to music, whether as the founder of a string orchestra in the ghetto, his service for 18 years as head of the Czech Philharmonic or his final role as a centerpiece of the Toronto musical scene. The present selection symbolizes highlights of his musical life, including his first recording (the Novak), a guest stint in Amsterdam with the Concertgebouw (a Dvorak that's rich and flowing yet focused and full of nuance) and the fine results he achieved in his final post with the Toronto Symphony (a Martinu with rhythmic vitality galore). While his and are fine, so are dozens of others, and thus the gems here are the Macha, Novak and Krejci pieces, all in their only recordings. The Macha is riveting – a striking piece in the tradition of the finest tone poems, unified yet evolving swiftly through a variety of richly atmospheric and edgy moods, a profound and vibrant reflection on the life and early death of a fellow composer and close friend. The Novak and Krejci are light and rather unexceptional but deserve to be heard. And after all his struggles, if that's the type of music Ancerl enjoyed, to bring some joy and light into a world whose sorrows and darkness he knew first-hand, who are we to argue?

Ozawa's tenure lent a fresh flavour to orchestra music in Toronto. Dynamic in style, sometimes daring in taste, he introduced music by such composers as Ives (Symphony No. 4, in the difficult single-conductor version) and Messiaen (Turangalîla, later recorded). Early in his conductorship the civic nature of the institution was symbolized by its performance at the opening ceremonies of Toronto's new City Hall. A tour in 1966 to Great Britain (Commonwealth Festival) and France was followed in 1969 by a more extensive one to Ozawa's own country, Japan. From this, and from the conductor's emphasis on contemporary Japanese works, especially those of Takemitsu, may be traced a marked influence on Toronto's musical tastes, notably in percussion performance and in composition. In Canada's centennial year, 1967, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra became the Toronto Symphony. In honour of the centenary the orchestra introduced specially commissioned pieces by and Luigi Nono. Ozawa's Toronto sojourn, though brief, had a tonic effect on orchestra and public. At his departure he was named musical director emeritus.
