Bourgie Hall presents

Ensemble Dialoghi – An Evening in Vienna

An elegant program of music from the Viennese classical tradition, featuring works that showcase the voice, the rarely heard clarinet d’amore, and Bourgie Hall’s fortepiano.

Ensemble Dialoghi
Cristina Esclapez, fortepiano

Cristina ESCLAPEZ (Spain) pursued her graduate studies in piano performance with Ramón Muñoz in Murcia and Patricia Montero in Brussels, in the course of which she played the complete solo keyboard works of Haydn and Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. She subsequently decided to focus on her true passion, which is chamber music. She performs regularly with musicians such as Lorenzo Coppola and Vicens Prats, who have had a decisive influence on her career. She also shares her passion for chamber music with her students, with whom she partners in Barcelona and around the world, deeply convinced of the importance of this role, which calls for the combined talents of a music coach, confidante, advocate, ally, and improviser.

Andréanne Brisson Paquin, soprano

Hailed for her generous stage presence and expressive voice, Montreal-born soprano Andréanne Brisson Paquin is equally devoted to several different musical genres, singing baroque, classical, operatic and even contemporary repertoire with the same commitment, rigour, and excitement. 

A fine recitalist, Andréanne’s sensitivity shines in the intimacy of chamber music repertoire. She has given many recitals, and has won national and international prizes in collaboration with pianists Michel-Alexandre Broekaert, Matthieu Fortin, and Francis Perron. These awards include the Audience Prize award at Mary Trueman Art Song Competition in New York, Guy-Soucie Excellence Award, 2nd Prize at Concours International de Musique de Chambre de Lyon, 2nd Prize at Eckhardt-Gramatté Competition for Canadian and Contemporary Music, and 2nd Prize and Duo Prize at the New York Joy in Singing Competition. She was also a finalist at the prestigious Montréal International Musical Competition 2012, where she performed with Montreal Symphony Orchestra. Andréanne completed her vocal studies at Université de Montréal before pursuing a Masters degree in the Netherlands at the Conservatorium van Amsterdam, graduating in October 2010.

Lorenzo Coppola, clarinet and clarinet d’amore

Lorenzo COPPOLA (Italy) studied period clarinet with Eric Hoeprich. He performs regularly with the Freiburger Barockorchester, Les Arts Florissants, La Petite Bande, and La Grande Écurie. He shares his love of chamber music with artists such as Andreas Staier, Isabelle Faust, Alexander Melnikov, the Zefiro Ensemble, the Kuijken Quartet, and he enjoys a special rapport with his colleagues from the Ensemble Dialoghi. He has recorded the Mozart Clarinet Concerto with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Mozart Clarinet Quintet with the Kuijken Quartet, and the Brahms Clarinet Sonatas with Andreas Staier. Very keen on conveying the full expressive range of the score, he loves to decode the musical vocabulary of each era and sharing it with audiences and his students. He teaches period clarinet at the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya in Barcelona.
