Yves Léveillé – The Scale of Time

For composer Yves Léveillé, a balance between notated music and improvisation is fundamental. In this concert, he gives us music that is immediate, introspective, and energetic. It stretches out or contracts with the passing of time, alongside extraordinarily expressive leading artists.

Yves Léveillé, piano and composition

Recipient of the André Gagnon Prize (instrumental music) from the SPACQ Foundation, he is recognized both for his compositions and arrangements and for his numerous musical collaborations with leading jazzmen, singers, songwriters, actors and directors. Pianist and composer Yves Léveillé is also the founder of Les Productions Yves Léveillé, an organization dedicated to the production and presentation of contemporary jazz concerts. Supported by various levels of government, the artistic company is constantly expanding its activities (concert production, tours, albums). Sometimes in search of dreamy phrasing, sometimes cerebral, sometimes lyrical, Léveillé works obstinately in a quest for jazz beauty.

Originally from Lévis, Yves Léveillé – who has lived in Montreal since 1984 – decided in the 1990s to create his own ensemble to interpret his compositions. He has produced eight original albums, available on the Effendi label and ATMA Classique. All of them have been favorably received by critics and music lovers alike. He is regularly called upon to present his works in Canada, Asia, Europe and the United States.
