Tryon Concert Association will present I Musici de Montreal Thursday, March 22 at 8 p.m. at the Tryon Fine Arts Center.
I Musici de Montreal, founded in 1983, is a chamber music orchestra of 15 musicians that presents a vast musical repertoire from baroque to contemporary. The group has developed a reputation as one of the world’s finest chamber orchestras.
Known for its gutsy, passionate music-making, I Musici de Montréal will present a program centered on Mussorgsky’s “Pictures at an Exhibition,” performed with choreographed paintings by award-winning artist Natasha Turovsky. The production travels with digital projections of 15 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 some of the greatest halls in the world, including New York’s Lincoln Center, the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, Germany and the Palais des Beaux-Arts in Brussels. Public enthusiasm and critical acclaim has confirmed I Musici’s importance on the world’s musical stage.
