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.
Bach, Fantasy & Fugue in G minor, BWV 542
Adams, Shaker Loops
Mendelssohn, String Symphony in D minor No. 7
A rising star in the world of conductors, New Zealand’s Gemma New is carving out a brilliant career in Canada and the United States. She chooses Bach as the central theme of her first concert in Montréal. The influence of the choirmaster of Leipzig can be felt as much in the Seventh String Symphony from the young Mendelssohn as in Shaker Loops by John Adams.
60-65 minute concert with no intermission. No reserved seating.
