Brandford Marsalis en quintette

Théâtre Jean-Duceppe August 12, 2022

After an unforgettable concert in 2017, the world-renowned saxophonist Branford Marsalis will be back with the OSM. A reputed artist recognized internationally in both jazz and classical circles, this artist will demonstrate the variety of ways his instrument is employed in the chamber repertoire.  Joined by OSM musicians and OSM Competition winners, Marsalis offers a rare opportunity to hear works by Adolf Busch and Ellen Taafe Zwilich, as well as the audaciously scored Quarteto simbólico by Villa-Lobos. The tableau will be completed with pieces by Debussy, including the evocative Danse sacrée et danse profane.
