Here is a great opportunity to hear the young Canadian pianist Carter Johnson, winner of the OSM Competition in 2018. He will perform some of Poulenc’s Improvisations and two masterpieces of the repertoire the Polonaise-fantaisie, op. 61 by Chopin, overflowing with imagination, and Ravel’s Le Tombeau de Couperin, in which the Prélude, Fugue, and ancient dances culminate in a dazzling Toccata.
