Critics have consistently praised Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s recording of the complete piano works of Debussy for Chandos. “By never succumbing to either an anecdotal  or overblown approach, he always remains close to the substance of the musical text, rendering that substance in all its immediacy. It is magical.”  (Diapason)

CITIES OF GOLD
Saturday April 21 2018 - 19:30
Duration : 2h

Winner of a JUNO Award in 2016 for the album Las Ciudades de oro, L’Harmonie des saisons charts musical territories in the Spanish colonies of South America during the 17th and 18th centuries. Great composers of European, Metis, or Aboriginal origin working in rich colonial cities such as México, Bogotá, or Lima created works for courts and cathedrals in these prominent cultural centres. This programme reveals the stunning musical treasures of these Cities of Gold.

INFORMAL CHATS: Starting at 6:45 pm, our two musical guides, Maxime Brunet and Chirine Tarhouny, will be on-site to converse informally with audience members. Before the concert, during intermission and after the concert, concert-goers can learn more about South American baroque music and its multicultural origins as well as the instruments which will be heard during the concert.

France, Yves Angelo, 1994, 110 minutes

In Paris, February 1817, Derville, the Countess’s lawyer, is visited by an old, shabbily dressed man. He claims to be Colonel Chabert, who was supposed to have died in the Battle of Eylau in 1807 and now wishes to reclaim his title, his rights and his wife. Derville tries to untangle the threads of this never-ending intrigue constantly evolving in accordance with the vicissitudes of the endless Human Comedy.
