The most prestigious concert of the season!
Valery Gergiev and Denis Matsuev, two giant Russian artists, are back to Montreal with The Mariinsky Orchestra of St. Petersburg, Russia’s emblematic musical institution.
Valery Gergiev has been at the helm of the Mariinsky, one of the best orchestras in the world, since l988. His energy, passion and charisma make him one of the most celebrated conductors of the international music world. Denis Matsuev quickly established himself as one of the most sought-after pianist of his generation after his brilliant victory at the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998. Time and again he has conquered the hearts of Montrealers.
Their last Montreal performance in 2013 got unanimous rave reviews: "A rare and precious moment" that was acknowledged by all those attending.
