Orchestre symphonique de Montréal (OSM) presents

Youth and Creativity: From Mozart to the OSM Competition

Here is a concert to stimulate the imagination: a performance of musical tableaux. After marvelling at the creative genius of Mozart in his Symphony no. 29, the audience will hear mezzo-soprano Rose Naggar-Tremblay, Grand Prize winner of the 2021 OSM Competition, in Elgar’s cycle Sea Pictures for voice and orchestra. Set to texts by various British poets depicting the sea, its ports, ships, and swimmers, this work displays the manifold colours of English Romanticism. To conclude, some twenty music students will join the musicians of the Orchestra in Mussorgsky’s magnificent, evocative Pictures at an Exhibition, certainly the composer’s best-known work.
