Cheng2 Duo

Centre d’art de Richmond, 1010 rue Principale nord, Richmond

Captivating audiences and critics alike, the «brilliant» (The Times, UK) Cheng2 Duo stands out for its accomplished musicality, an operating alchemy and subtle communication with audiences. The Chinese-Canadian brother and sister duo is cellist Bryan Cheng, the first cellist to win the 2019 OSM Grand Prize — in possession of a Antonio Stradivarius “Dubois” cello, Cremona, 1699 courtesy of Canimex Inc. of Drummondville — and pianist Silvie Cheng, who received the Roy M. Rubinstein Award for outstanding performance.

Great moments with charming young musicians who will take you on an exciting journey. The gentle complicity of this brother/sister duo highlights the almost human soul of Bryan’s cello, carried by Silvie.

Le Vitrail, 1254 Ste-Marthe, Thetford Mines

The Luce e Ombra project, «Lumière et Ombre», brings together opera excerpts, a cantata and instrumental pieces by the famous Venetian composer Antonio Vivaldi. These works of remarkable beauty are somewhat in his image, all in contrasts: chiaroscuro, sadness-cheerfulness, exuberant despair-joy, all sprinkled with the characteristic strangeness that pleasantly spice up his writing.

Le Vitrail – Espace culturel

Images oubliées

Le Vitrail, 1254 Ste-Marthe, Thetford Mines

Through a unique and thematic concert, cellist Stéphane Tétreault and pianist Olivier Hébert-Bouchard offer you a musical retrospective on the life of Claude Debussy!

By transforming the «soloist» aspect of these works into a conception for two instruments in dialogue, the language of Debussy’s sounds resonates differently, sometimes more intimate, sometimes more grandiose, but always with the intention of creating a strong link with the audience. The evocative power of these compositions is inevitably altered, since they now tell their story but also that of the two musicians who transmit them.

The Nine Maidens

Espace culturel Saint-Gilles, 562, Rte des Outaouais, Brownsburg-Chatham

Ensemble Ménestrel • Janelle Lucyk, voice & violin • Kerry Bursey, voice & lute

Through voices, a myriad of plucked strings, and some violin, Ménestrel performs old music in an intimate manner, with ayres and ballads recounting the transience of good fortune in the life of a voyager. In The Nine Maidens, these English-language folk songs provide vivid imagery of age-old expeditions, daring escapes and voyaging delights. In response to the action packed folk songs, baroque airs offer reflection and represent the inward feelings of the heroines. The program includes music by Purcell, Dowland, Gilles Binchois, and Guillaume de Machaut.
