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. Francis Poulenc will appear in the programme for 14 and 15 April, when his Wind Sextet 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 Saint-Saëns, Lekeu and Dubois, performed by Les Violons du Roy under the direction of Nicolas Ellis with David Jalbert as piano soloist, will conclude this festival of French Romantic music.
