Orchestre classique de Montréal presents

From Mozart to McCartney

In collaboration with Festival Classica, the OCM presents a wonderfully eclectic concert to close its 82nd season. Mozart’s famous ”Jupiter” Symphony, the Double Concerto for Guitar and Bandoneon by Piazzolla, and arrangements of songs by Paul McCartney, ex-member of The Beatles, interpreted by OCM’s Quatuor classique, will surely make this concert a unique and captivating experience.

The renowned American magazine Classical Guitar called him “a superb Canadian guitarist” and CBC Music included him on its list of Canada’s top thirty most promising young musicians in classical music, describing him as an “ardent ambassador for classical guitar.” His debut album Canciones, which was financed by the Canada Council for the Arts and MusicAction, was released in early 2018 under the Analekta label. The CBC music flagship classical music program In Concert mentioned that “every note stands out, like the brilliant distinct colours of a masterpiece by Pablo Picasso” when describing Adam’s debut album
