You’ve never been able to be this close to the music: to hear it, to see it and be touched by it. In a rethought Bourgie Hall, you’ll find I Musici in the centre of the room, surrounded by… you. The conductor leads you through these concerts that last from 60 to 65 minutes with edifying commentaries and fascinating anecdotes. What’s more, one hour before the concert starts, we offer coffee (matinée) or wine (cocktail hour) that you can enjoy with us or among friends. The name may mean small, but our I Concertini have great character and guarantee pleasure and conviviality.
Wijeratne, The Poetry of Squares
Mozart, Quartet No. 19 “Dissonance” K. 465
Wijeratne, Suite for Piano and Strings (premiere)
Bartok, Hungarian Folk Songs (string version)
Tabla solo (North India)
S ri Lankan-born Canadian composer, conductor and pianist, Dinuk Wijeratne was described by the New York Times as “exuberantly creative”. During the concert, he invites the audience to explore with him the sounds of his musical universe, from the Indian tabla to his own works, not to mention Mozart, Bartok and Corigliano. And because Québec is part of that universe, his Suite for piano and strings, co-commissioned by I Musici and the Manitoba Chamber Orchestra.
60-65 minute concert with no intermission. No reserved seating.
