Works by Claudel, Lizée, Longtin and Milhaud.

Pre-concert event, 7:00 pm, free admission: the piece and the role that percussion plays will be presented to discover the Brazilian rhythms buried within the masterpiece, tonight’s major work, L’Homme et son désir.

From Darius Milhaud’s wild and enchanting path through the Amazonian forest, to the spectacular and moving works by Quebec’s own Michel Longtin, with a detour to Nicole Lizée’s avant-garde and exciting music, this season the SMCQ starts off to the beat of the drums as we engage the public. Impressive on both visual and aural levels, and totally devoted to percussion and voice, the opening concert provides a soupçon of the festival MNM 2013 theme.
