Saint-Saëns’ “Organ” Symphony

Best known for his famous work Carnival of the Animals, Camille Saint-Saëns was also an organist, teacher, keen traveller and ardent champion of French music. Sway to the toe-tapping rhythms of the Tarentelle for Flute, Clarinet and Orchestra and experience the commanding power of the “Organ” Symphony, which earned the OSM the Juno Award for the best recording in the Classical Album of the Year: Large Ensemble or Soloist(s) with Large Ensemble Accompaniment category last April.

OSM Classical Spree / Virée classique

Classical SpreeThe 5th edition of the OSM Classical Spree Festival is a grand celebration of classical music, where great international masters meet a new generation of rising talent, performing work by composers of yesterday and today. With a colourful offering of more than 30 concerts over 4 days, the possibilities are nearly endless. Chamber music, recitals, vocal music, world music, youth oriented concerts, and of course symphonic concerts make up the varied programming.  This year the programming breaches the traditional borders of the concert hall, with a whole new series of free outdoor performances, movie and opera screenings.  www.osm.ca/en/festival-viree-classique
