The Orchestre de l’Université de Montréal opens its season on a brilliant note with a concert that traverses three centuries of music. First the 21st century, with a premiere by Snežana Nešić, winner of the 2023 OUM Concerto Competition, then the 20th, with excerpts from Ravel’s ballet Daphnis et Chloé. That work, in which the composer evokes the “Greece of his dreams,” was premiered by the renowned Ballets Russes, with Nijinsky in the role of Daphnis. The shimmering colours of the orchestra and the delicacy of the writing imbue this score with a tantalizingly sensual poetry. As for the 19th century, that will be illustrated by one of its most famous representatives, Felix Mendelssohn, who wrote a vibrant Concerto for Two Pianos in order to perform it with his sister, Fanny.
