Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil presents

Stradivarius, Mozart

The musicians of the Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil and their conductor-soloist Alexandre Da Costa will pay tribute to the timeless music of the great Mozart with his most famous symphony, Symphony No 40. They will also welcome a talented guest; pianist Élisabeth Pion, who will join them to perform Concerto No 24 by the Austrian composer. And finally to liven up this concert, they invited Joël Legendre to present Mozart himself.

Élisabeth Pion, piano

A curious and innovative artist, pianist Élisabeth Pion, born in 1996 in Quebec, Canada, is internationally active as a soloist, chamber musician, and artistic collaborator.

Based in London, UK, Élisabeth is currently finishing the Artist Diploma program with Ronan O’Hora at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama, where she is a full scholarship holder since 2018. She has previously worked in Canada with Francine Lacroix, Suzanne Goyette and André Laplante.

Élisabeth was selected by Dame Imogen Cooper to take part in the Imogen Cooper Music Trust for 2021. In 2019, she was chosen to work with Christian Blackshaw during the Hellensmusic Festival. She has also played in masterclasses for, notably, Till Fellner, Stephen Hough, Boris Berman, Bernd Goetske, Claudio Martinez Mehner, Richard Goode, Paul Lewis and Robert Levin.

In July 2021, she made her Wigmore Hall solo recital debut. Her upcoming performances include her debut with the Victoria Symphony, the Orchestre symphonique de Laval and the Orchestre classique de Montréal. She has previously been invited as a soloist with the Ensemble Sinfonia de Montréal, the Orchestre symphonique du Conservatoire de musique de Montréal, the Ensemble Volte, the Orchestre symphonique de Longueuil and Arion Orchestre Baroque. Élisabeth is scheduled to make her debut in China in the near future.

Élisabeth is passionate about chamber music and is a member of the De Beauvoir Piano Trio. She has been active in performing on fortepiano, having worked with Maggie Cole, and has recently performed two Mozart concerti with Arion Orchestre Baroque in Montréal on a Broadwood piano dating from 1826, with conductor Mathieu Lussier. She is also fascinated by classical improvisation and has worked with David Dolan in this area.
