Denys Lortie

A Word from the Director

One sees clearly only with the heart.

Making a video dedicated to music means a lot to me, because this art form is an important part of my choices. It plays a major role in my life.

Music is like a friend, an accomplice, a lover that you’re never done discovering… It hides a thousand facets.

At certain points in your life, it can help you through harsh trials; in other circumstances, it’s an invitation to good cheer, accompanying you in moments of grace, of pure happiness.

When Pro Musica approached me to direct the audio-video recordings for Mélodînes, a series of concerts dedicated to our wonderful new generation of classical musicians, I took one listen to these young musicians and immediately hopped on the opportunity.

You’ll definitely have a great time sharing these magical moments with me!

When it comes to music, one sees clearly only with the heart.
