Classical Spree 2022

Rafael Payare’s first Classical Spree will be synonymous with discovery and daring. From the Far North to the Tierra del Fuego, this OSM summer event in Montreal’s Quartier des spectacles offers and occasion to immerse yourself in some of the various languages, music and cultures that have inhabited the vast land known as the Americas for centuries.

For this event, the OSM will welcome several high-calibre artists from both American continents: saxophonist Branford Marsalis, soprano Jeanine De Bique, trumpeter Pacho Flores, violinist James Ehnes and pianists Sergio Tiempo and Bruce Liu, among others.

The Festival will celebrate a wide array of musical and literary cultures of the Americas, ranging from sacred songs in the Quechuan language, to Argentinian tango, to Yiddish literature, to Canadian concert music. This voyage throughout the Americas, from North to South and from one ocean to the other, is absolutely not to be missed!
