Works by Longtin and Ustvolskaya.

The SMCQ brings a breath of fresh air to this new season, with a program combining sound power and total freedom. To this end, two works by the Russian composer Ustvolskaya will invite the audience to discover sounds as unique as his instrumentations. Included are his piece for eight double basses and a cube struck by a hammer! Michel Longtin — one of Canada’s most original voices — then pays tribute to Sibelius and echoes the composer’s Finnish landscapes. Vents nordiques explores musical nordicity. An exciting insight into two composers with singular styles. Ultimately, a mind-clearing moment of great musical intensity!
