Orchestre symphonique de Montréal presents

Beethoven’s Triple Concerto in OSM Colours

Blake Pouliot, Bryan Cheng, and Angela Hewitt—three OSM Competition winners—will join forces in Beethoven’s one and only Triple Concerto for Violin, Cello and Piano. Also featured is Beethoven’s utterly poignant and resolutely heroic Coriolan Overture. To conclude, this Viennese genius undoubtedly inspired Louise Farrenc’s First Symphony, whose dramatic character is well served by Farrenc’s great compositional mastery.
