Montreal Chamber Music Festival presents

Canadian Stars / Étoiles canadiennes

Three internationally acclaimed Canadian artists: pianist Stewart Goodyear, cellist Bryan Cheng and violinist Kerson Leong on-stage together for the first time.

It is truly remarkable how Canada has distinguished itself internationally in the classical music field. Coming together for the first time, the three performers in this concert are among the world’s elite new generation of international performers. Their varied program includes the Quebec premiere of pianist Stewart Goodyear’s Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso, the ever-popular Moonlight Sonata by Beethoven, the Hungarian gypsy influence in Kodály’s Duo for violin and cello and the remarkably tuneful and unforgettable dance melodies of Dvořák’s “Dumky” Piano Trio.

This program is sure to be an intoxicating combination of colour, style, melody and exceptional talent.
