The conference was the most successful edition yet. Over 1300 professionals represented 45 countries at this year’s edition. </span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>As a proud partner of this conference, <a href="www.stingrayclassica.com?utm_source=stingray-blog&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">Stingray Classica</a> had a beautiful booth at the event to present the Classica app and television channel. Stingray’s Artistic Director, Rob Overman, gave a riveting keynote on ‘Streaming Video and Classical Music’. He talked about streaming as a big opportunity for classical music, and how artists, orchestras, venues, and other classical music companies can benefit from video streaming services such as the Classica app.</span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>Over the course of the conference, there were many meetings and discussions on the future of classical music, as well as interesting presentations that explored the topic. Besides all the talking, the most important part was, of course, the music! </span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>Klangmalerei.tv and Stingray recorded many of the daily showcases. Artists from all over the world performed classical music in innovative and creative ways. They pushed the boundaries of classical music and extended the horizons of art in music. For some ensembles, it was the first time that they performed in the Netherlands or as big a conference as Classical:NEXT.</span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>Thursday afternoon started with Ensemble Hope from France. They explored new forms of contemporary music by using technology to present little-know instruments. One of the instruments was the Euphone, which looked very impressive. The ensemble doesn’t only make music, but also gives masterclasses, presentations, and workshops to involve people and explain their vision on the future of classical music and the instruments they use.</span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>We already mentioned the Asko | Schönberg Ensemble in our <a href="https://blog.stingray.com/artists-watch-classicalnext-2019?utm_source=stingray-classica-brava&amp;utm_medium=socials" target="_blank">Artists to Watch article</a>, and it was indeed worth the watch! With the help of a speaker, they explained their way of producing new classical music with video technology that accompanies the music. They played a new piece by the Dutch composer Louis Andriessen. He is turning 80 in June and continues to contribute to the future of classical music. </span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span>Other inspiring acts, such as Gaybird, The Hermes Experiment and Kathleen Tagg &amp; Andre Petersen assembled a big audience during their performance. You can watch these and all other performances on Stingray Classica soon.

The concert marked the end of the orchestra’s 45th season and showcased the talents of all 85 TSYO graduates, aged between 14 and 22. Featured works included Modest Mussorgsky/Orch. Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov’s Prelude to <i><em>Khovanshchina</em></i>, Sergei Prokofiev’s Suite from <i><em>The Love for Three Oranges</em></i>, Op.33, and Dimitri Shostakovich’s <i><em>Symphony No.10</em></i> in E Minor, Op.93. </span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>For 45 years, the TSYO has been dedicated to providing a high-level orchestral experience for talented young musicians aged 22 and under. The TSYO program delivers a unique, powerful, and life-enriching opportunity that encourages significant achievement, regardless of the career path participants choose. The TSYO has a close affiliation with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra: TSO musicians serve as coaches through the season, TSO guest artists lead masterclasses for TSYO members, and the TSYO performs annually with the TSO in a side-by-side concert at Roy Thomson Hall.</span></span></span></p> <h2 class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><strong>TSYO Stingray Rising Stars </strong> </span></span></span></h2> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>The Stingray Rising Stars winner was announced on-stage by Matthew Loden, TSO CEO, and Ariane Charbonneau, Sponsorships and Partnerships Manager at Stingray. The talented 16-year-old Duncan MacDougall won the 1000$ prize to contribute towards advancing his career. Candidates for the award were judged on demonstrated leadership within the orchestra, artistic excellence, overall improvement and how they would use the prize money and exposure to further their musical career. Applications were judged by the TSYO faculty, made up of the TSYO Manager, TSYO Conductor and members of the TSO who act as teachers and mentors.</span></span></span></p> <h2 class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><strong>About the winner: Duncan MacDougall</strong></span></span></span></h2> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>Duncan has performed in masterclasses for Rachel Barton Pine, Ilya Kaler, Joel Krosnick, and Jonathan Crow. He is a Grade 11 student at Uxbridge Secondary School.</span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>We sat down with Duncan to tell us more about his win:</span></span></span></p> <div class="row-wrapper wysiwyg"> <div class="row row-narrow"> <div class="col"> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">What is your earliest artistic memory?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">When I was three years old, I would hold a ukulele to my chin and drag a drumstick across its strings, pretending that it was a violin and bow. My brother would loudly strum along on his mini guitar. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Where/When did you decide you wished to become an artist professionally?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">It’s been my dream since I started violin lessons at the age of four to become a professional violinist. In 2014, I watched a Taylor Academy/Glenn Gould School masterclass led by Peter Oundjian. I was amazed by how good some of the students were, and they were only about five years older than me. That was when I really started working hard and when I dedicated myself 100% to music.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Who and what are your main influences?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">Two of my biggest influences are my teachers, Kelly Parkins-Lindstrom and Jonathan Crow. They are the ones who have gotten me to this point in my musical journey; they influence my musical choices, they help me to improve my technique and my practice habits, and I’m inspired after ever lesson.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">I am also influenced by Itzhak Perlman’s violin playing. I love the joy and character in his playing, and the fact that he takes risks to let the music speak. I also enjoy the playing of James Ehnes and Vilde Frang. </span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">How did you come to be part of the TSYO?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">I knew many people in the TSYO before I joined, and they all seemed to enjoy it very much. I joined the TSYO in the 2017-18 season for many reasons. Being a part of this orchestra gave me valuable orchestral audition experience, I’ve explored amazing repertoire, and I’ve made many musical friends.</span></span></span></span></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong><span><span><span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA">What do you plan to do with the prize money?</span></span></span></span></strong></p> <p class="text-align-justify"><span><span><span>I plan to use it towards making professional recordings for university auditions, and also to help pay for tuition for universities and summer programs in the future. I am very grateful to Stingray and to the TSYO for this award.</span></span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p class="text-align-justify"><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span>For more information regarding the Stingray Rising Stars program, click </span></span></span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span><a href="https://music.stingray.com/rising-star?utm_source=stingray-blog&amp;utm_medium=referral" target="_blank">here</a></span></span></span><span lang="EN-CA" xml:lang="EN-CA"><span><span>.</span></span></span><br />  </p> <p class="text-align-justify"><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

These stars of classical music get a lot of attention all over the world. They play in the biggest concerts halls and are the headliners of classical music festivals. But how does one become a classical music icon? What does it take to get to the top? And by giving the younger generation a bigger stage, will this also attract a younger audience? The younger classical generation presents Young Euro Classic!</span></span></p> <p><span><span>Young Euro Classic was founded in 2000 in Berlin, Germany, to bring younger musicians together in orchestras. This way, the younger generation could meet and share their knowledge. Young Euro Classic is a 17-day summer course, but also an important platform for European classical music traditions and heritage. The young generation is the key to innovate and keep this tradition alive. During the summer, orchestras all over the world perform at the Konzerthaus Berlin. Their program consists of world-famous classical music works to local, unknown compositions.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>During the concerts, the orchestras are accompanied by renowned soloists and led by great conductors. This event is one of the most important events of the year for these young musicians. A lot of orchestras are made up of youngsters from one country, but there are also mixed orchestras that break with the country boundaries. One of them is the Asian Youth Orchestra. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Conductor and artistic director of the orchestra, Richard Pontzious initially founded the Asian Youth Orchestra (AYO) with violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin, in 1987. Pontzious aimed to create a platform for young Asian musicians to unite musical talent within the continent and encourage a new generation of homegrown talented individuals. Today, the AYO is considered Asia’s premier pre-professional orchestra, having received awards such as the 2010 Praemium Imperiale Grant for Young Artists, in 2010. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>You can now enjoy the Asian youth orchestra on <i>Stingray Classica</i> with other performances from the Young Euro Classic festival. From June 14 to 16 we dedicate our weekend to young classical musicians. Enjoy beautiful masterpieces such as Mahler – Symphony No. 1 and Tchaikovsky – Piano Concerto No. 1. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>For more information about the programs and the full schedule visit <a href="http://www.stingrayclassica.com">www.stingrayclassica.com</a>.</span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

With a broad and striking repertoire, they play a wide range of genres, from chamber music to large scorings with regular presentations of theatre music. DoelenEnsemble concerts are of an internationally-recognized high standard, challenging audiences with their choice of pieces. Young and up-and-coming composers play recent masterpieces in which thematic connections give a completely new context to individual pieces. </span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong>May 16, 20:00 – Asko | Schönberg Ensemble (the Netherlands)</strong></span></span></p> <p><span><span>Asko | Schönberg performs music from the 20th and 21st centuries in both concert settings and in interdisciplinary productions. The ensemble's highly qualified musicians perform works from solos to larger-scale repertoire. Asko | Schönberg occupies an unassailable position in the arts through its enormous versatility and constant forward momentum. Collaboration between musicians, composers and creators is a key element of their work. They examine musical and theatrical formats, techniques and possibilities through a dynamic working process that results in exciting discoveries, new insights, and innovative methods of presentation. </span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong>May 17, 12:45 – The Hermes Experiment (United Kingdom)</strong><br /> Winners of the Tunnell Trust Awards 2017, Park Lane Group Young Artists 2015/16, and winners of Nonclassical’s Battle of the Bands 2014, The Hermes Experiment is a UK-based contemporary quartet made up of harp, clarinet, voice, and double bass. Capitalizing on their deliberately idiosyncratic combination of instruments, the ensemble regularly commissions new works as well as creates innovative arrangements and ventures into live free improvisation. The ensemble has commissioned over 50 composers at various stages of their careers. </span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong>May 17, 21:30 – Clarinet Factory (Czech Republic)</strong></span></span></p> <p><span><span>Considered to be one of the most unique ensembles to feature on the Czech scene in the last 25 years, the style of the Clarinet Factory hovers between contemporary and classical music, jazz, and world music. As winners of the Classic Prague Awards in 2017 for Best Crossover Project, the quartet combines their classic music training and clarinet art with jazz, minimalism, and improvisation to create music without borders, capable of communicating directly with all audiences. </span></span></p> <p><span><span><strong>May 18, 13:00 – Spark (Germany)</strong></span></span></p> <p><span><span>Spark re-thinks the classics. The quintet places Bach, Vivaldi, Mozart and their peers in a fresh new context, forging links with the sounds and lifestyle of the present day. Classical at heart, outwardly willful, inquisitive and nonconformist, the five musicians pitch their tent on the open ground between classical works, minimal music, electro, and avant-garde. With enthusiasm and abandon, they mix styles and explore a galaxy of sonic options, with a well-stocked arsenal of instruments that offers an array of over 40 instruments, including recorders, violin, viola, violoncello, melodica, and piano. </span></span></p> </div> </div> </div> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

Many of the beautiful Passions that were written and composed for this time of the year are performed all over the world. One Easter tradition started at the beginning of the 17th century in Leipzig. Now, it has become a big tradition for classical music fans and enthusiasts. Stingray showcases these beautiful compositions on different platforms and services.</strong></span></span></span></p> <p><span><span>In the beginning of the 17th century, there was a small Passion tradition during the Holy week started by an earlier Thomas-cantor. Choral Passions were sung regularly in the churches in Leipzig. The first concertante Passion in Leipzig is, according to many writers, the <i>Brockes Passion </i>by Georg Philipp Telemann. This almost three-hour Passion was performed in 1717 by Johann Gotfried Vogler, the former organist and director musicales of the Neukirche. By that time, Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), born in Eisenach, started his new job as ‘Capellmeister,’ in Kötchen. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Bach started his Passion performance in 1724, putting his stamp on the Good Friday Vespers service with the ‘St. John Passion,’ one of the older surviving Passions by Bach. Over the years, Bach altered his Passions regularly. His St. John Passion underwent multiple rounds of changes and improvements that resulted in four versions. The Passion, according to St. Matthew, BWV 244, was presented at St. Thomas’ in Leipzig, on Good Friday, 1727. It was a work of extraordinary musical dimensions but was forgotten after Bach died, in 1750.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>One composer that helped Bach make history was Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy. In 1829, he performed the, at that time partly forgotten, St. Matthew Passion in Berlin. The chorales that were still performed during the end of the 18th century inspired Mendelssohn to perform the Passion as one big masterpiece again. Other works by Bach, besides the St. Matthew Passion, started being regularly performed. Music by Viennese composers such as Mozart, Haydn, and romantic composers such as Mendelssohn and Schumann, had bigger status and was performed more frequently in Europe.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>The Netherlands fulfilled a very big role in the return of the St. Matthew Passion in the churches and concert halls. This started in the 19th century when Johannes Verhulst promoted the oeuvre of Bach with the German ‘Bach Gesellschaft.’ There was a lot of attention for the Netherlands’ first performance of the St. Matthew Passion in 1870, in Rotterdam. Not only during the official performance, but also the rehearsals, were visited by hundreds of visitors. But it was Willem Mengelberg who started a yearly tradition of the St. Matthew Passion, on Palm Sunday, in Amsterdam. </span></span></p> <p><span><span>Mengelberg combined the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra with the Amsterdam Toonkunstkoor and conducted the Passion himself. Between 1899 and 1919, he led 45 performances, not only in the Netherlands, but also in Frankfurt, Brussels, and Paris. The Netherlands’ Bach Society was at first against the popularity of the St. Matthew Passion. The society was afraid that the performances of the Passion would not be authentic but spreading Bach’s music was one of its goals. Starting in 1922, the Netherlands Bach Society also started to organize an, almost yearly, performance of the St. Matthew Passion.</span></span></p> <p><span><span>The discussion between the authenticity of the Passion kept going during the years to come. Instead of seeing this as a negative, in the Netherlands there was place for interpretations, different opinions and a Passion for everybody. After the Mengelberg years around 1950, the St. Matthew Passion was officially a Dutch tradition. The movement, led by Gustav Leonhardt, inspired by Nikolaus Harnoncourt, and included Ton Koopman and Philippe Herreweghe, was searching for a true historic performance. It reached its goal in 1983 when a new baroque orchestra was born: a small choir with musicians specialized in Baroque music and an orchestra that played historic instruments. This performance was highly valued, but there was still room for other interpretations.</span></span></p> <p><span><span><i><em>Today a lot of unique recordings of this Easter Passion exist, each with its own beauty and particularities. Around Good Friday and </em><em>Easter</em><em> you can listen to, and watch, many Passions at Stingray. Stingray Brava and Stingray Classica present two versions of the St. John Passion and one Brockes-Passion. In addition, there are two beautiful Easter Concerts </em><em>from</em><em> 2015 and 2016 in Baden-Baden Germany. The Berliner Philharmoniker plays with star soloists Isabelle Faust and Yo-Yo Ma. Listening to the Passions is also possible via Stingray Music. The special Baroque channel has many of Bach’s masterpieces, and the vibe ‘Good Friday Hymns’ is full of great classical music for Easter.</em></i></span></span></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Stay on the pulse of the most recent news in music.

C’est une mission que porte très bien son chef et directeur artistique actuel, Alain Trudel. L’excellence de l’orchestre l’amène aussi à être de plus en plus l’invité de festivals de renom à l’extérieur des frontières de Laval, comme le Festival international de Lanaudière, le Festival Montréal en lumière ou encore la série Arte Musica, à la Salle Bourgie du Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal. Le chef Alain Trudel, récemment nommé Directeur musical du Toledo Symphony Orchestra (États-Unis), nous fait découvrir ses cinq coups de cœur de la saison 2018-19 de l’OSL.</p> <h4><em>« Cette saison, je voulais que chaque concert devienne un événement en soi. Les concerts n’ont pas été programmés comme une série, mais plutôt dans l’esprit de rendre chaque rendez-vous unique. Ce seront des moments marquants! » </em></h4> <p>- Alain Trudel, chef de l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval</p> <h3>1) Les œuvres révolutionnaires</h3> <p><img alt="Berlioz" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="1c5c0985-2b74-4df9-b178-77d2a4c25d7e" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Berlioz_coup-de-coeur-1.JPG" /></p> <p>« Ça faisait cinq ans que je souhaitais programmer la Symphonie fantastique de Berlioz avec l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval. C’est une œuvre révolutionnaire à plusieurs points de vue! Je l’ai dirigée souvent, mais ce sera ma première fois avec l’OSL et c’est notre plus grande œuvre de la saison. Il y aura aussi 73 musiciens sur scène! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie fantastique? </em><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/r%C3%A9volution" target="_blank">Le 26 septembre à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <p>« La 3e Symphonie de Beethoven est elle aussi une pièce révolutionnaire que j’aime beaucoup. Avant son existence, la grande majorité des symphonies duraient 25 minutes – et celle-là en fait 45! L’instrumentation était aussi avant-gardiste pour l’époque, notamment par l’utilisation d’un 3e cor. À l’origine inspirée des idées révolutionnaires véhiculées par Napoléon, Beethoven a déchiré la page couverture de l’œuvre (qui lui était dédiée) lorsque Napoléon a décidé de se nommer empereur! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie no3 de Beethoven?</em> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9" target="_blank">Le 24 avril 2019 à 19 h 30</a><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9">, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <h3>2) La Sérénade de Leonard Bernstein</h3> <p><img alt="Martin Chalifour" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="3b0e5223-6762-452c-9309-54802348dad9" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Martin-Chalifour_coup-de-coeur-2.jpg" /></p> <p>« La magnifique Sérénade pour violon, cordes, harpe et percussions de Leonard Bernstein est une œuvre que j’adore! Je la dirigerai pour la première fois et j’ai très hâte. Ce sera aussi l’occasion pour nous de faire entendre l’un des plus grands violonistes québécois : Martin Chalifour, qui est violon solo de l’Orchestre philharmonique de Los Angeles. Il a déjà joué la Sérénade avec le Los Angeles Philharmonic et Esa-Pekka Salonen, en tournée au Lincoln Center de New-York… ça promet! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Sérénade de Bernstein?</em> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/bernstein" target="_blank">Le 7 novembre 2018 à 19 h 30</a><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/bernstein" target="_blank">, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a></p> <h3>3) La Cantate BWV 199 « Mein Herze schwimmt im Blut » de Jean-Sébastien Bach</h3> <p><img alt="Bach" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="5af631f8-6eb9-4b2c-8c29-16cdcded2287" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Bach_coup-de-coeur-3.jpg" /></p> <p>« Cette Cantate de Bach, profondément humaine, est l’une de mes préférées. Elle nous rappelle ce qu’il y a d’humain dans la religion, mais dépeint en même temps l’humain allant vers le divin. La Cantate 199 n’est pas un discours qui ne fait que prêcher quelque chose de divin, mais puise plutôt dans l’expérience humaine, ce que je trouve inspirant. Cette œuvre me touche beaucoup, et c’est selon moi notre pièce de l’année à l’Orchestre! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Cantate BWV 199 de Bach? </em><a href="//www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/baroque " target="_blank">Le 12 décembre 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu OU le 25 novembre 2018 à 14h, à la Salle Bourgie. </a></p> <h3>4) La Symphonie Mathis le peintre de Paul Hindemith</h3> <p><img alt="Hindemith " data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="436445ca-c797-4eb7-9bf3-3095484e0d8a" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Hindemith_coup-de-coeur-4.jpg" /></p> <p>« La musique de Paul Hindemith est pratiquement jamais jouée, mais tellement belle. Ce compositeur a été proscrit par les nazis de son vivant qui l’ont même qualifié de « dégénéré ». Peu d’orchestres jouent du Hindemith au Canada, et je suis fier que l’on arrive à en programmer à l’OSL (nous avions joué la Musique de concert pour orchestre à cordes et cuivres en 2014). C’est la première fois que nous jouerons la Symphonie Mathis le peintre à l’Orchestre – et à mon souvenir elle n’a pas été jouée depuis fort longtemps au Québec. L’œuvre provient d’un opéra de Paul Hindemith et est de toute beauté… on ne doit pas s’en priver! »</p> <p><em>Quand entendre la Symphonie Mathis le peintre de Paul Hindemith?</em><a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9" target="_blank"> Le 24 avril 2019 à 19 h 30, à la Salle André-Mathieu.</a> </p> <h3>5) Les créations jouées cette année</h3> <p><img alt="Petros Shoujounian, Komitas, Nicole Lizée" data-entity-type="file" data-entity-uuid="652aa815-e928-4f43-bd1d-527357b557b6" src="/sites/blog/files/inline-images/Cr%C3%A9ations_coup-de-coeur-5.jpg" /></p> <p>« Les moments forts de notre saison seront aussi les œuvres que nous créerons. Tout d’abord, celle de la compositrice montréalaise <strong>Nicole Lizée</strong> : l’œuvre s’inscrira dans le concept du concert, et donc s’inspirera des idéaux de la liberté. Des images multimédia en lien avec l’œuvre accompagneront en direct l’Orchestre sur scène… ça promet d’être intense!</p> <p>Il y aura également deux œuvres de <strong>Petros Shoujounian</strong>, avec qui j’ai collaboré dans les derniers mois. Il a composé sur mesure un concerto pour tout l’Orchestre inspiré des œuvres spirituelles du chantre arménien Komitas. La pièce regroupera tous les éléments d’une messe, un peu comme une sorte de messe concertante – plusieurs beaux moments en perspective! Petros Shoujounian a aussi composé un concerto pour la grande pianiste Louise Bessette et nous, également sur des thèmes de Komitas. Ces œuvres gagnent à être connues.</p> <p>Le Garbage Concerto de <strong>Jan Jarvlep</strong> a déjà été joué au Canada et ce n’est donc pas une création, mais l’œuvre sera jouée pour la première fois au Québec. C’est un concerto pour percussions inspiré du recyclage et joué sur instruments recyclés… tellement un beau message à envoyer! »</p> <p>Quand entendre les créations qui seront jouées à l’Orchestre symphonique de Laval?</p> <p>• Œuvre pour orchestre et images multimédia, de Nicole Lizée :<a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/libert%C3%A9 " target="_blank"> le 24 avril 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu </a></p> <p>• Œuvres de Komitas réarrangées par Petros Shoujounian : <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/spirituelle-arm%C3%A9nie-0 " target="_blank">le 27 mars 2019 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu </a></p> <p>• Garbage Concerto, de Jan Jarvlep : <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr/concerts/r%C3%A9volution " target="_blank">le 26 septembre 2018 à 19h30, à la Salle André-Mathieu. </a></p> <p> </p> <p><strong>Découvrez la saison :</strong> <a href="https://www.osl.qc.ca/fr" target="_blank">osl.qc.ca</a></p> <p><a href="https://www.facebook.com/OSLaval " target="_blank">Facebook</a> - <a href="https://twitter.com/OSLaval " target="_blank">Twitter</a> - <a href="//www.instagram.com/os_laval/" target="_blank">Instagram</a></p></div> <div class="field field--name-field-tags field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/classical" hreflang="en">Classical</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/baroque" hreflang="en">baroque</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/classique" hreflang="en">classique</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/festival" hreflang="en">Festival</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-stingray-brands field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/45" hreflang="en">Stingray Brava</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/97" hreflang="en">Stingray Classica</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/51" hreflang="en">Stingray Concerts</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/46" hreflang="en">Stingray DJAZZ</a></div> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/44" hreflang="en">Stingray Music</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-section field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__item"><a href="/discover" hreflang="en">Discover</a></div> <div class="field field--name-field-country field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/77" hreflang="en">North America</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-display-in-language field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/taxonomy/term/83" hreflang="en">French</a></div> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-image field--type-image field--label-hidden field__item"> <img src="/sites/blog/files/2018-09/OSL.jpg" width="1200" height="600" alt="OS Laval - Saison 2018-2019" typeof="foaf:Image" /> </div> <div class="field field--name-field-show-in-listen field--type-boolean field--label-above"> <div class="field__label">Show in Listen</div> <div class="field__item">Off</div> </div> Mon, 10 Sep 2018 14:33:33 +0000 Stingray 557 at https://blog.stingray.com Stingray Classica | Maintenant accessible partout au Canada https://blog.stingray.com/stingray-classica-maintenant-accessible-partout-au-canada <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">Stingray Classica | Maintenant accessible partout au Canada</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/eric-a" lang="" about="/eric-a" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">Eric A</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Wed, 08/29/2018</span> <div class="field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p><span><span><span><a href="https://classica.stingray.com/fr/CA/" target="_blank">Stingray Classica</a>, la seule chaîne télé entièrement consacrée à la musique classique et distribuée dans 50 pays est maintenant disponible partout au Canada. </span></span></span></p> <p><span><span><span>La chaîne est accessible gratuitement jusqu’au 20 septembre d’un océan à l’autre pour les clients de Bell qui peuvent profiter des meilleurs concerts de musique classique, opéras et ballets filmés dans des établissements de renom, ainsi que de 50 premières exclusives par année.
