Concerts / De l’Empire du Mu au port de Hambourg: Chocs des cultures

  • March 3, 2007
    7:00 pm
Salle Pollack — Université McGill
555, rue Sherbrooke Ouest

Works by Boudreau, Huber, Jodlowski, Stahnke.

This whimsical concert brings together musicians from Montreal and Lyon in a truly explosive programme of works!

With the masterwork Herbstfestival, German Nikolaus Huber once more demonstrates is mastery of musical time in a metaphor of wood, stone, metal, and movement! Times and Money by Jodlowski will highlight soloist Jean Geoffroy with a multimedia installation that places the percussion in a shower of sounds and images, for a musical discourse that calls into question our society, and relationships with others, time, money, and more.

Thirty years after its premiere, audiences will rediscover Walter Boudreau’s monumental Les Sept Jours, which paints with formidable energy the genesis of our world, as conceived by the ancient magi of the mythical empire of Mu!

In Harbor Town Love at Millenium’s End, Manfred Stahnke shifts focus to musicians in search of meaning, at the meeting point of African, Indonesian, and Latin-American traditions. Soloists Marie-Chantal Leclair (saxophone), Sara Laimon (prepared piano), and Fabrice Marandola (percussion) will serve as “modern day troubadours” questioning their origin… and their future.
