The Salle Bourgie of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts is hosting this season a new edition of the festival organised by the Centre de musique romantique française outre-Atlantique. It too makes its contribution to the cycle of music by Camille Saint-Saëns, and will open on April 9 with a concert by musicians of the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, who will perform, among other works, his Septet op.65, scored for the unusual forces of string quintet, trumpet and piano. A study day will explore the roles of science and travel in the composer’s career. The next rendezvous, featuring the famous Carnaval des animaux, will be repeated in a session reserved for children. A major figure of the French flute school, Paul Taffanel, will appear in the programme for 14 April, when his Wind Quintet in G minor will be played by the Ensemble Pentaèdre, whose members will be joined by the pianist Lysandre Ménard for the rest of the concert. Works by Fauré, Pierné, Saint-Saëns and Dubois, performed by Les Violons du Roy under the direction of Nicolas Ellis with Cédric Tiberghien as piano soloist, will conclude this festival of French Romantic music.
