SCRUTINY | Azrieli gala a popular success

Par Arthur Kaptainis le 22 octobre 2022

Not all prizes devoted to music composition yield prizeworthy results. Happily, one of three scores performed at the Azrieli Music Prizes gala Thursday night at the Maison symphonique handily won the all-important I Want To Hear It Again award while another took Big Hit With The Audience honours.


REVIEW | War Requiem a victory for the Conservatoire

Par Arthur Kaptainis le 14 mars 2019

Montreal, city of orchestras. We hear about the professional ensembles but must not forget the schools that supply them, including the Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, which on Wednesday night assembled 100 instrumentalists and 350 choristers in the Maison symphonique for a concert intended to extend the celebration last year of the 75th anniversary of the institution.


REVIEW | OSM: Buchbinder’s Beethoven is pure poetry

Par Arthur Kaptainis le 12 février 2019

OK, je le prends. Despite my initial skepticism over the concept driving the OSM’s four-day “Brahms and the Art of Film” (Le 7e Art et Brahms) cycle at the Maison symphonique, I could accept the final instalment as a pleasant sampler on a Sunday afternoon. Tenuous connections are connections just the same.


REVIEW | Bernstein’s Age of Anxiety has aged well

Par Arthur Kaptainis le 5 août 2018

Celebrating the centenary of the birth of Leonard Bernstein is compulsory in the United States, optional elsewhere. I confess to approaching the penultimate concert of the 2018 Lanaudière Festival on Saturday night with a touch of oh-please-not-him-again skepticism. I left with my respect for Bernstein the composer renewed.
