A Classical 2012 Music Season in Montreal

A Classical 2012 Music Season in Montreal

The 2011-2012 season was a great one for classical music in Montreal, with the opening of two new venues.

The Maison Symphonique de Montréal and Bourgie Hall found their audience and stayed packed. Now they’re about to be put to the “Year 2” test.

The Maison Symphonique de Montréal and Bourgie Hall found their audience and stayed packed. Now they’re about to be put to the “Year 2” test.

The Orchestre symphonique de Montréal is facing an interesting challenge: to bring back all the music lovers who gave it such a warm welcome, selling out almost every concert during its first season at the Maison Symphonique.

This will definitely be an easy task for the season’s opening: Mahler’s spectacular Second Symphony, to be performed September 5, 6, and 8, under the direction of Kent Nagano.

Among the concerts coming up toward the end of the year is the return of Gil Shaham, who will perform Britton’s Violin Concerto.

In October, Marc Minkowski will make his debut conducting the OSM. Soloist Susan Graham will sing Chausson’s “Le poème de l’amour et de la mer,” which Marie-Nicole Lemieux will perform in Quebec City one month later.

Another debut with the orchestra is anticipated: Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, performing Bartok’s Third Piano Concerto, on November 20.
