I Musici de Montréal offers you the perfect marriage between the bucolic flights of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and the majesty of Beethoven’s famous 5th Symphony. A well-known and beloved educator, our chef makes it easy for you to listen and briefly and simply explains the program’s historical and musical context. Your appreciation of the works will be better! Vivaldi bequeathed us his famous Four Seasons accompanied by a poem, but also by his pen, and which describes what happens musically. Invite an artist from your community to read these poems on stage before each season. This will create a special connection between your community and our musicians.

The Shepherd and the Storm

Come rediscover the Four Seasons, interpreted as you’ve never heard them before, thanks to the originality and flamboyant verve of Julie Triquet and I Musici de Montréal.

Our conductor, Jean-François Rivest, an ardent communicator, will literally make you see the elements of nature, weather, and village customs that Vivaldi himself asks the musicians to describe through their playing. The shepherd, the true hero of this wild story, will experience in turn: the joy of spring’s arrival, the dances and peasant bagpipes, the peaceful slumber in the heather, the oppressive weight of the heatwave, the visceral fear of the storm, the alcoholic frenzy of the grape harvest, the hunting with hounds, and the biting cold of winter and the warlike North winds… As a prelude to this extravagant epic, let yourself be charmed by the delightful Divertimento No. 1, K. 136 by Mozart, a work by a brilliant teenager, considered by many as his very first symphony.

Mes fôrêts – Hélène Dorion and I Musici

Music and poetry

At a time when my forests are in distress, suffering from climate change and burning by the thousands, here’s a concert that will put a balm on your ecological heart. A true symbiosis of poetry and music, the program offered by I Musici de Montréal is based on Hélène Dorion’s internationally acclaimed masterpiece Mes Forêts, and works by Beethoven, Vasks, Richter and Glass.

The intimate reading of excerpts from Mes Forêts by the author herself, and the beauty of one of the works that best celebrates nature, Beethoven’s Pastoral, will be the common thread. The bewitching, more modern and resolutely accessible music of Max Richter, Peteris Vasks and, above all, Philip Glass will complete this poetic picture, which is so topical…
