Coproduction MNM / McGill Schulich School of Music, in collaboration with the McGill Digital Composition Studio (Sean Ferguson, Director)

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.

Programme

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
