I Musici de Montréal
A LITTLE HISTORY
At every concert, I Musici strives to offer a unique musical experience that emphasizes passion and
excellence but above all audacity and innovation.
A little history… In 1977, cellist and conductor Yuli Turovsky (1939-2013) arrived in Canada with $50 in his pocket, a prodigious musical background and the dream of establishing a chamber music orchestra. His ambition and passion made the dream a reality with the founding of I Musici de Montréal in 1983. Almost 35 years later, the magic continues, both on the Montreal stage and across the country, thanks to 15 exceptionally talented musicians and the artistic direction of Jean-Marie Zeitouni.
