Say Beethoven to any music lover and his grandiose lion-like image springs forth along with his countless and timeless melodies.
The 22nd annual Montreal Chamber Music Festival has Beethoven’s music sprinkled throughout its 28 plus concert season. The crowning glory is the monumental six-concert presentation of all 16 string quartets as performed by the exceptional Dover Quartet, recipients of this year’s Avery Fisher Career Grant.
I devote my soul to bring together the unique mix of excellence we offer to Montrealers. Together with our devoted staff, supportive board and dedicated volunteers, we make a remarkable organization aspiring to bring the best in chamber music, all the while encouraging classical music’s best rising stars. In a town that has everything musically speaking, we distinguish ourselves by our unique, creative and innovative programming.
Chamber music is all about collaboration and teamwork. It is about coming together to serve the greatness of the music we perform, about giving our all to join hands in an enthusiastic embrace of that which inspires us, about going beyond our individual strengths to a whole that is greater than the sum of each one of us. Music remains the greatest language of all, the language of our shared emotions.
Welcome to our journey and enjoy it with us. We do it with passion and total commitment.
