Les actualités baroques décomplexées

Chers amis, Notre concert Les Sortilèges de Purcell avec la soprano Karina Gauvin arrive à grand pas. Nous sommes heureux de vous présenter en primeur la note de programme de ce concert rédigée par notre conseiller artistique François Filiatrault. Nous espérons vous retrouver le 6 avril......

Peu de personne savent ma passion pour le jeu d’échecs. Dernièrement je m’y suis remis intensément et je vais dès le vendredi 11 novembre me mettre à la compétition en participant au tournoi du vendredi du club d’échecs de Montréal. Lors de mon séjour en Islande en septembre dernier j’ai pu visiter l’endroit où fut enterré Bobby Fisher, légende échiquéenne....

L’histoire de la musique en occident a longtemps fait briller une éclatante absence : celle des femmes, cantonnées pour l’essentiel dans le rôle, splendide et hautement célébré de muse et d’interprète lyrique. Les temps ont heureusement changé : on compte de nos jours de merveilleuses......

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!

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.
