WHAT DISTINGUISHES THIS FESTIVAL
The Montreal Chamber Music Festival, now in its 21st season, presents a richly diverse program featuring extraordinary artists from around the world and at home in Quebec and Canada. Taking place in three great concert halls, the Festival is a renowned ambassador of Montreal's international profile as City of Festivals.
FESTIVAL HIGHLIGHTS
Highlights of the 21st season include soprano Measha Brueggergosman and trumpeter Jens Lindemann in Golden Voices, an evening hearkening back to the legendary collaboration between Kathleen Battle and Wynton Marsalis; Ben Heppner narrating Richard Strauss's epic melodrama Enoch Arden, played by pianist Stephane Lemelin; pianist Simone Dinnerstein in Bach's Goldberg Variations; and a world premiere composed by Dean Burry and based on Mordecai Richler's Jacob Two-Two Meets the Hooded Fang, paired with LHistoire du Soldat. Jazz artists include clarinetist Paquito d'Rivera with his quartet for "A Night in Havana," and piano legend Oliver Jones delivers his Festival farewell before retirement. Additional artists include the Emerson String Quartet, cellist Amit Peled, clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, pianists Andre Laplante and Alon Goldstein, and the Fine Arts Quartet.
