I Musici presents

Yuli’s legacy: Stéphane Tétreault and Bryan Cheng

“Our fortieth-anniversary season will conclude with a one-of-a-kind concert celebrating the legacy of Yuli Turovsky, I Musici founder, cellist, and conductor. I Musici musicians will be featured, of course, along with cellists Stéphane Tétreault and Bryan Cheng—both of whom studied with Turovsky. In addition, the concert will feature a premiere by French-Canadian composer Denis Gougeon, a long-time I Musici associate and friend, and the conclusion of our complete Bach violin concerto series featuring three I Musici members as soloists. Arranged for a solo string quartet and string orchestra by Jean-François Rivest, Beethoven’s Pastoral Symphony will bring the anniversary celebrations to a majestic close.” – Jean-François Rivest
