Les actualités baroques décomplexées

Le public a eu droit à un grand moment de musique lors de la rencontre entre l’hautboïste baroque Alferdo Bernardini et les Boréades. Le photographe Pierre Markon a eu l’occasion d’assister à la répétition générale de ce concert et nous offre quelques superbes souvenirs photos....

We are happy to share the program note for the  concert Per l’Oboe featuring Alfredo Bernardini that will be presented Frebruary 13th at the Salle de concert du Conservatoire....

Artistic Director’s Note

2018-2019 Season

Another magnificent season is here… As always, Les Boréades selected four very different concerts out of the vast repertoire from the XVIIth and XVIIIth century. As a tribute to our love of fine dining, a series of culinary names now represent different types of performances. The Ratatouille and Minestrone categories reference the French and Italian repertoire respectively, while Strudel and Banquet designate the classical repertoire for the first, and large scale projects for the second. The Mignardises series exclusively promotes the virtuoso capacities of the members of the ensemble, no matter the repertoire. Each one of them can thus propose pieces and share newly discovered favourites, accompanied by some of their colleagues.

For the Banquet category, we, along with the Choeur Saint-Laurent, give you cantatas by the great Bach, in the Bourgie Hall. Crossing the ocean solely for your pleasure, Alfredo Bernardini will then add hints of fruitiness to our Mignardise concert thanks to his extraordinary oboe skills. Our Minestrone will introduce you to the nonchalant virtuosity of the first instrumental Italian baroque, and to top it off, we present to you our Strudel, which this year consists of concertos and orchestra suites such as Bach and Telemann would have performed for Leipzig and Hamburg’s music lovers.

We hope to see you amongst us!

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.
