La Symphonie «Inachevée» de Schubert

The Orchestre symphonique du Conservatoire de musique de Montréal presents La Symphonie «Inachevée » de Schubert conducted by Andrei Feher.

Andrei Feher, conductor

Andrei Feher has already earned a reputation for his musical maturity and integrity, natural authority on the podium, and an imaginative and intelligent approach to programming. At the age of 26 Feher was appointed as the new Music Director of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra in 2018. Having gained early experience as assistant to Fabien Gabel at the Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec, at the age of 22 Feher joined the Orchestre de Paris as Assistant Conductor to its Music Director, Paavo Järvi. During this time he collaborated with conductors including Zubin Mehta, Valery Gergiev, Christoph von Dohnányi, Thomas Hengelbrock and Jaap van Zweden, as well as regularly conducting the orchestra in their popular Young Public concerts at the Philharmonie de Paris. In addition to his commitments with the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, recent and upcoming highlights include performances with the Tokyo Symphony Orchestra, Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal, Orchestre de Chambre de Lausanne, Orchestre Symphonique de Quebec, Les Violons du Roy, Orchestre Philharmonique de Monte-Carlo, Orchestre National d’Ile de France, Orchestre Métropolitain Montreal and Romanian Radio National Orchestra.

A strong advocate of contemporary music, Feher has recently performed works by Eric Champagne, Pierre Mercure, George Dimitrov, Ciprian Pop and Abigail Richardson, as well as the world premiere of Thierry Besancon’s opera for children Les Zoocrates with Opéra de Lausanne. In November 2015, Feher conducted the world premiere of Soleil Noir by Pierre Jodlowski with the Orchestre de Pau-Béarn, which resulted in an immediate invitation to conduct the work in Toulouse in November 2016.

Born in Romania into a family of musicians, Feher began his musical education as a violinist in his hometown Satu-Mare before continuing his studies at the Montreal Conservatoire when his parents relocated to Canada.

Eva Lesage, violon

Canadian-Serbian Violinist Eva Lesage is studying at the Montreal Conservatory of Music in the studio of Alexander Read and Helmut Lipsky. Invited three times by the OSM, notably in recital as part of the Virée Classique, the young violinist has won numerous first prizes, among others at the Euro Elite International Music Competition, the Canadian Music Competition and the Pierre- De-Saurel music competition. These distinctions allowed her to play as a soloist with numerous orchestras in North America, the Cathedral Bluffs Symphony Orchestra and with the Orchestre Métropolitain during a six concerts tour that received the 2019 Opus Prize for Production of the Year – Young Audiences. She will also perform with the I Musici orchestra of Belgium and Montreal, as well as with the Orchestre Symphonique du Conservatoire de musique de Montréal during the 2022-23 season. Eva holds the position of Concertmaster at the OSCMM and is a founding member of the Quatuor Vatra, having won First Prizes at the Canadian Music Competition, Classival Music Competition and at Sherbrooke Music Competition.

Justine Lefevre, violoncelle

A music lover from her early childhood, Justine began learning the piano at the age of 5, but two years later migrated to the cello, which became her real passion. She has been studying at the Montreal Conservatory of Music since 2015 in the class of Carole Sirois. Winner of the 2022 edition of the Montreal Conservatory of Music Concerto Competition and scholarship recipient of several editions of the Laval Arts Support Foundation, she is as passionate about chamber music as the orchestra.

She joined the National Youth Orchestra of Canada for the summer of 2019, which allowed her to tour Canada and Spain. Her career has led her to play under the baton of several well-established conductors such as Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Alain Trudel, Jacques Lacombe and Jean-Marie Zeitouni. She has also performed in master classes for several internationally renowned cellists, including Stéphane Tétreault, LluisClaret, Brian Manker, Michel Strauss, Marc Coppey and Natasha Brofsky. Alongside her studies, Justine has dedicated herself for several years to teaching the cello.
