[two_third_column]Des débuts – remarquables – de chef d’orchestre dans le long et séduisant Souvenir de Florence de Tchaïkovsky. Attentif à tout ce qui se déroule de section en section, Alain Aubut pousse chacune à son maximum, obtient d’énergiques tutti et amène ces jeunes à chanter l’Adagio cantabile avec une rare émotion. Claude Gingras, La Presse

Edvard Grieg produced only one complete mature string quartet, the String Quartet in g minor, Op. 27. Yet it remains one of the most original and influential string quartets of the late 19th century. The Nouvelle Génération Orchestra will perform a wonderful string arrangment from our artistic director Yuli Turovsky. Under the skillful hands of our conductor Alain Aubut, this masterpiece of great originality will be a pure musical delight. The Vocal Ensemble KÔ will joint us in the Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis from composer Ralph Vaughan Williams to conclude this magical evening.
