For its season closing, I Musici brings you on a journey covering a wide palette of emotions. The exceptional cellist and musical pioneer Matt Haimovitz revisits Schubert’s famous Arpeggione Sonata, followed by a performance of From Jewish Life, a musical exploration of the Jewish spirit. A traveller’s sightings and impressions are then portrayed in Viatore for string orchestra. And, to conclude a vibrant season, I Musici’s fearless musicians take on Beethoven’s monumental Grosse Fuge orchestrated by Jean-Marie Zeitouni.


The musicians are joined by internationally renowned soloists and guest conductors as they perform major works from the repertoire. This concert is given in the intimate setting of Bourgie Hall of the Montréal Museum of Fine Arts, known for its excellent acoustics.
