Works by Cherney, Dutilleux and Gilbert.
This year the Faculty of Music at McGill University celebrates its centenary. Part of the celebrations include a commission from Professor Brian Cherney, as well as a performance of his violin concerto by the renown Jonathan Crow, a former student of the faculty who currently serves as concert master with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. And representing the youngest generation is doctoral candidate Nicolas Gilbert, a young intellectual polyglot and talented composer. The music of Dutilleux rounds out the whole, with a work that is as refined as it is highly personal, and which consistently meets with unanimous approval. The whole falls under the direction of Alexis Hauser, who wields a masterful hand in leading one of the most dynamic student orchestras in all of Canada.
- This concert is given again the day after, Saturday March 5th, at 7 pm.
