Ensemble Transmission performs works by Harman, Harvey, Lizée, Murail, Oesterle and Palacio-Quintin.

Preceded by short talk with Cléo Palacio-Quintin (7:15 pm).

Again this year, SMCQ has invited the skillful Transmission ensemble to present a concert where works by local composers and monuments of 21st-century music will brush elbows. Transmission’s six virtuosos will wow us with their passionate readings of a very difficult repertoire through premieres by Nicole Lizée and Chris Paul Harman and reprises by Cléo Palacio-Quintin, Jonathan Harvey, Michael Oesterle and Tristan Murail.

This concert is being recorded by Radio-Canada’s music radio network Espace musique (100.7 FM in Montreal) for national broadcast at a later date on Soirées classiques, hosted by Michel Keable, Mondays to Thursdays at 8 pm. It will also be available to listeners on demand through Espace musique’s Web radio service at musique.radio-canada.ca.
