Works by Chen, Gougeon, Shostakovich and Tchaikovsky.
Memories of China … The OSM brings us the privilege of attending the North American premiere of Denis Gougeon’s Toy (Music Box), for full orchestra and traditional Chinese flutes, presented on this occasion under the direction of Long Yu, one of China’s most renowned artists. During its Shanghai premiere, the work was awarded first place in a major international composition competition, thanks to its SMCQ commission. The program also gives a place of honor to Enchantements oubliés, by Chinese composer Qigang Chen. Undoubtedly a not-to-be-missed Homage Series event! This concert is also part of “Focus sur la Chine” presented by the Place des Arts.
