On Tuesday, March 28, at 7:30 pm, Bourgie Hall will welcome the Camerata RCO, which includes members of the celebrated Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, one of the most acclaimed orchestras worldwide. This prestigious chamber music ensemble is hailed internationally for its captivating and technically superior interpretations and was praised by the New York Times for its “warm, glowing performances.”

Based in Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, the Camerata RCO tours extensively every season. Their second appearance in the intimate setting of Montreal’s beloved chamber music venue is sure to delight those wishing to experience an evening of great music and inspiring performances by one of today’s most acclaimed ensembles.

Despite their busy concert schedule with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, these outstanding musicians, united by their passion for chamber music, share the joy that playing in a smaller ensemble provides them. Having performed on the world’s most prestigious stages with tremendous success, they enjoy exploring a different kind of repertoire. The more intimate and direct communication with the public made possible by smaller settings inspires them, allowing them in turn to convey to the audience the energy and excitement that emanates from these concerts.

For this personal and intimate evening, this unique ensemble, appearing in various formations ranging from three to eight musicians depending on the works performed, showcase a fascinating and innovative programme of early 20th century music, featuring compositions by Martinů, Poulenc and Turina. They will present, among other works, Poulenc’s Le Bal masqué with Montreal-based baritone Geoffroy Salvas as invited guest.

Their presence in Montreal provides a great occasion to hear in concert these rarely programmed works, performed by these exceptional musicians. Tickets are available at the cost of $54 for the general public, $46 for Museum members and $28 for those aged 34 and under.
