For Making this Year’s Festival Unforgettable!
Concert reviews from you, our audience :
“What a concert, a joy for the ears!” - D. Hébert
“A very beautiful gift for life!” - L. Thériault
Our season began in style with three sold-out concerts taking place in the beautiful Oval room at the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. “Rendez-vous au Ritz !” brought together established artists with some of Montreal’s most gifted up-and-coming musicians for a delightful Sunday morning breakfast and concert.

Special collaborations at the Festival included bringing together four spectacular pianists for a programme of 8-handed repertoire. The brilliant concert ended with a hilarious surprise encore featuring all four gentlemen at one piano!
Watch the encore with pianists Alon Goldstein, David Jalbert, Steven Massicotte, and Wonny Song here.
Our final concert was a cello celebration, with no less than 12 cellists, including our Artistic Director Denis Brott, coming together to creating a gorgeous sound. The cellists were joined by stellar soprano Aline Kutan for a beautiful performance of Villa-Lobos’ Bachianas Brasileiras No.5.
