I MUSICI DE MONTRÉAL
OFFERS TWO WEBCASTS CONCERTS
WITH THE VIOLINIST SHEILA JAFFÉ
AND THE CELLIST STÉPHANE TÉTREAULT
As a result of health restrictions that are putting a strict hold on all the cultural activities at the beginning of this year, the I Musici de Montreal Chamber Orchestra will continue its season with the special presentation of two concerts which will be available by webcasts only. From February 3 to 20, the concert will feature Montreal virtuoso violinist Sheila Jaffé, while Stéphane Tétreault’s concert will honour Yuli Turovski’s legacy from February 17 to March 6.
“Although we have to cancel our next two in-person concerts (January 27 and February 10), it remained important to us to continue to offer our audience the opportunity to appreciate the work of our chamber orchestra by giving them moments filled with softness, in what feels like a difficult start to the year. That is why we are very pleased to be able to offer them the webcast of the two concerts.” – Marisol de Santis, executive director
In Virtuosic Women, you will be amazed with Sheila Jaffé playing the Gypsy Airs by Sarasate and the marvellous variations on the themes of the opera Carmen. Works by Janáček, Dvořák and Quebec composer Linda Bouchard will complete the program. Replacing guest chef Nil Venditti, the concert will be conducted by our talented and dynamic artistic advisor and first guest conductor, Jean-François Rivest. The webcast of the concert will be available from February 3 to 20.

In Stéphane Tétreault and Yuli’s legacy, a long-time collaborator of the company will pay tribute to the cellist and founder of the orchestra, Yuli Turovski, who was the heart and soul of I Musici of Montreal for more than 25 years. After the Haydn part, the program, conducted by Jean-François Rivest, will make way for the famous string quartet Death and the Maiden by Schubert, in which vertiginous techniques go hand in hand with great romanticism. The webcast of the concert will be available from February 17 to March 6.
