Les Violons du Roy joins forces and talents again with I Musici de Montréal for an extraordinary chamber orchestra program featuring the sublime perfection of Corelli, the poignant romanticism of Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night, and the world premiere of a new work by Canadian composer Stacey Brown, specially commissioned for the occasion.

"A larger number of string players makes it possible to perform works that our ensemble could not play on their own, in particular Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night, one of the most poetic and Romantic pieces among the repertoire. Transfigured Night was based on a poem by Richard Dehmel (and will be read by Sophie Cadieux), telling the story of a love relationship that turns souls, anxiety, and darkness into peace and light. Our collaboration will work perfectly for Corelli’s Concerti grossi, as this work benefitted from a large orchestra. You will hear the Concerti grossi in all their brilliancy with our orchestra and the Violons du Roy, topped with a bass continuo made up of harpsichords, organ, guitars, and archlutes. Montréal-based composer Stacey Brown has graciously agreed to compose an unpublished work that will be presented during the concert. " — Jean-François Rivest
