with Jean-Philippe Sylvestre
Webcast concert on April 27, 7:00 p.m.
The Orchestre classique de Montréal and conductor Boris Brott are thrilled to welcome, for the first time, renowned Quebec pianist Jean‑Philippe Sylvestre as guest soloist. He will perform Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 23 at the Pierre-Mercure hall which will be broadcast on April 27th at 7:30pm and will be available online for 2 weeks, until May 11th.
The program will also feature Mozart’s Divertimento in D major, K. 136, conducted by Xavier Brossard‑Ménard, and the Symphony Concertante in G major, op. 13, by the Guadeloupian-French composer Joseph Bologne, Chevalier de Saint‑Georges, a contemporary of Mozart.
“We were hoping to welcome a live audience in the hall for this concert, however, due to the retightening of the curfew and the uncertainty due to the variants, we have decided it is safer to delay welcoming our audiences until later in the season.” says Taras Kulish, Executive Director of the OCM.
Originally from Sainte‑Julie, Jean‑Philippe Sylvestre received the prestigious Virginia Parker Prize, the Canada Council for the Arts’ highest award, in 2008. First-prize winner at the Montreal Symphony Orchestra Competition, Mr. Sylvestre has released several critically acclaimed albums under the ATMA Classique label, including two with the Orchestre Métropolitain.
This concert will be presented in collaboration with the Austrian Honorary Consulate General in Montreal and the Austrian Society of Montreal.
Available for viewing online from April 27, 7:30pm to May 11
