At the Church of St. John the Evangelist, in the heart of the Quartier des spectacles, I Musici artistic director Jean-Marie Zeitouni today unveiled the Montréal chamber orchestra’s 32nd season.
Four concerts with expanded forces and internationally renowned guest soloists performing major works at the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts’ Salle Bourgie.
Five 60-minute programs of chamber music offered in four different time slots and presented in an intimate venue, perfect for interacting with the audience.
You may know that in the original edition of The Four Seasons, Vivaldi prefaced the four concerti with four sonnets evoking various pastoral scenes, transforming them into living paintings worthy of the most beautiful Brueghel paintings. For this concert, however, i musici artistic director Jean-marie Zeitouni asked Québec poet martin thibault to evoke the “seasons of montréal” with Vivaldi’s universally known masterwork. the program also gives the orchestra’s concertmaster, Julie triquet, an opportunity to demonstrate her great virtuosity, musicality, and profound sensitivity. What better way to celebrate the fall colours.
