HÉLÈNE GRIMAUD
& YANNICK NÉZET-SÉGUIN

Barbara ASSIGINAAK - RAVEL - Florence PRICE

Masterful piano playing and poetic intensity come together to create the ultimate emotional experience in Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G Major. Performed by internationally renowned pianist Hélène Grimaud and conducted by Yannick Nézet-Séguin, this piece by the legendary French composer is transcendent.

Dive into a dreamy orchestral memoire with Anishinaabekwe composer Barbara Assiginaak’s piece Eko-Bmijwang – As Long in Time as the River Flows. Floating on calm waters illuminated by Nokomis, Grandmother Moon, the audience takes a journey down the river to where the current changes course. Florence Price’s Symphony No. 1 blends genres, showcasing African American spirituals, hymns and dances, while working within the mold of the classical symphony.

 

Concert dedicated to Sophie Desmarais, Honorary Patron of the Orchestre Métropolitain. Avanafil (Stendra) online
