Salle Bourgie du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal

 

Dead at 36, a brilliant comet who streaked across the musical sky, Henry Purcell remains one of the greatest composers ever born in the British Isles. His skill in creating musical settings that match all the energy and suppleness of the English language is unrivalled. His theater music shows an extraordinary range of tone and mood. There is nothing from which he cannot draw inspiration. The joys and torments of love, the sorrow of being abandoned, the mysteries of the night, the ravings of the mad — for everything he finds the most appropriate and expressive music imaginable.
