Pentaèdre, 2014-2015 Season

Montréal, July 16, 2014 – For its 29th season, Pentaèdre will stage five concerts, as surprising as they are original, which will feature renowned guest artists and seldom heard or newly reworked compositions for wind quintet. This is your invitation!

The season opens on September 24, 2014 with a concert honouring the Viennese master Franz Schubert so well known for his innate sense of melody. Original Canadian and American works will also round out the programme.

In the context of the exhibition From Van Gogh to Kandinsky – Expressionism in Germany and France, 1900-1914 at the Musée des Beaux-Arts and presented in collaboration with the Fondation Arte Musica, Pentaèdre will bring this sparkling period from the last century back to life with, among others, an arrangement of Stravinsky’s Sacre du printemps.

Music in the Drawing RoomFriday, February  6 at 5 pm and at 8:00 pmSalle Redpath, Université McGill
The popular Concerts au salon are back again! This year, pianist Mathieu Fortin will be the featured guest artist in a programme of French and German works. There are two ways to relive these soirées from the past:  with wine and bouchées or chocolates and port.

Germanic Influence Friday, May 1 at 7:30 pm Conservatoire de musique de Montréal
The last concert of the season will be a voyage to the heart of Europe with original works for woodwinds from the Romantic Period. Horn player Louis-Pierre Bergeron will join the ensemble for Reinecke’s magnificent Sextet.

Pentaèdre’s exploring and opening up for the public a varied and original chamber music repertoire drawn from the great tradition of music for wind instruments puts the ensemble in a unique place in Québec’s musical world. Under the artistic direction of Martin Carpentier (also on the clarinet), Pentaèdre is made up of Danièle Bourget (flute), Louis-Philippe Marsolais (French horn), Normand Forget (oboe) and Mathieu Lussier (bassoon), five talented musician-artists whose technique and performance precision are unanimously acclaimed.
