PURE AND SIMPLE MUSIC, this is what you’re invited to for our 2017-2018 season.
The program for this season was drawn up by a new artistic committee composed of seven music lovers who are passionate about chamber music. We are particularly proud to welcome the renowned baroque music ensemble L’Arpeggiata, led by Christian Pluhar, to Canada for the first time. They will present two concerts in October: Mediterraneo and La Lyra d’Orfeo. Next to come will be American soprano Dawn Upshaw in recital with the Brentano Quartet and pianist Marc-André Hamelin, accompanied by the Pacifica Quartet. On this occasion, they will perform one of Hamelin’s new compositions: Quintet for strings and piano. Of course, you will rediscover the Recitals series in collaboration with the OSM. Three renowned pianists: Mikhail Pletnev, Maurizio Pollini and Yuja Wang. Also, our Les Mélodînes lunchtime concerts, which will be spread throughout the season this year, will be held at the Salle Claude-Léveillée at Place des arts.
The Harmonies Series (formerly Dominica) at Salle Bourgie, maintains its collaboration with the most promising talents of the Marlboro Music Festival of Vermont and will also welcome the McGill Chamber Orchestra with guest pianist Serhiy Salov and violonist Bomsori Kim, both recent winners of the Montreal International Music Competition.
For the 69th season, Pro Musica continues its mission of offering its loyal audience the best of chamber music and would like to cordially thank you for your attendance without which we could not continue to exist. Have a great season!
