To open the Festival’s 40th anniversary season, Alain Lefèvre, Kent Nagano and the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal join forces on the stage of the Amphithéâtre Fernand-Lindsay for a most enjoyable and stimulating concert.
Jean-Willy Kunz, organist at Montreal’s Maison symphonique, opens the concert with a work by Samy Moussa called A Globe Itself Infolding. Then Alain Lefèvre performs Ravel’s Concerto in G, followed by Kent Nagano conducting the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal in Mahler’s magnificent Symphony No. 5 for a splendorous end to the evening.
