Musici de Montreal

I Musici de Montreal, founded in 1983, is a chamber music orchestra of 15 musicians which presents a vast musical repertoire from baroque to contemporary. I Musici is classified as a chamber orchestra, which is similar to a full-sized orchestra, and only differs in the number of members.

A chamber orchestra has typically 50 or fewer members, while a full-sized, or symphony orchestra, contains almost 100 or more musicians.

Known for its gutsy, passionate music making, I Musici de Montréal presents programs featuring works by such composers as Tchaikovsky, Bach, Prokofiev and Dvorak.

I Musici will create a concert to remember, when they play at Tryon Fine Arts Center, on March 22, 2012 at 8 p.m.

The centerpiece of the Tryon program features Russian composer, Mussorgsky’s, “Pictures at an Exhibition,” performed with choreographed paintings by award-winning artist, Natasha Turovsky.

The production travels with digital projections of fifteen large-scale paintings, inspired by the original Victor Hartmann paintings that themselves inspired Mussorgsky’s music.

Under the direction of Maestro Yuli Turovsky, I Musici has performed in halls around the world including New York’s Lincoln Center, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Germany, and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels.
