For this last concert of our 2012-2013 season, you will discover the music and the genius of our conductor Airat Ichmouratov. Be part of a world premiere of the orchestral suite Picture Gallery, based on the works of Natasha Turovsky. Let yourself be transported by the Fantastic Dances and Windcatcher played by our guest soloists as well as the Cello Concerto, Opus 18 featuring our own Stéphane Tétreault on his “Countess of Stainlein, ex-Paganini of 1707” Stradivarius. Also on the program, Antonio Vivaldi’s Four Seasons with the soloists of the Nouvelle Génération Orchestra. A concert of international caliber with talents right from our own back yard.
