Artistic Director’s Note

2016-2017 Season

The twenty first year already. How far have we got thanks to the most amazing early music (although not “old” per se!)… And it is more than ever our pleasure to offer you as much well-known masterpieces as unknown beauties found in this endless repertoire.  As opening act this year, a French instrumental music concert from the beginning of the eighteenth century, largely highlighting Olivier Brault’s violin. It will be followed by some Bach’s cantatas, which we will be presenting with the St. Lawrence Choir at the Bourgie Hall, in collaboration with the Arte Musica Foundation. The season’s last two concerts will be visiting the British Isles with Karina Gauvin, soprano, who will be singing Purcell’s most beautiful airs. Flute player Chris Norman will then bring us in Scotland and Ireland’s green lands with a touch of traditional music. We full heartedly hope you will join us in this journey!

  When Goethe observed, at the very end of the 18th century, that music in the new genre of the string quartet developed like a conversation between four civilized persons, he was not being particularly original. The art of conversation had been cultivated for more......

Les Boréades de Montréal

Francis Colpron, Artistic director and founder

Who are les Boréades?

Founded by Francis Colpron in 1991, Les Boréades de Montréal focuses on early music. The ensemble has chosen an interpretative approach in keeping with the spirit of the Baroque era, by adhering to the rules of performance practice of the past and playing on period instruments. Critics and audiences alike in Canada and abroad have been unanimous in hailing the group’s energy and spontaneity as well as its theatrical, expressive and elegant playing, indicative of a unique flair for Baroque aesthetics.
