Alain Trudel, Nicole Lizee
The theme of this season’s final concert is Liberty. It marks the 30th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, or “Wall of Shame,” an event that embodied freedom. Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 3, “Heroic” is steeped in the spirit of freedom to which the French Revolution aspired. In another register, in his powerfully colourful work, Paul Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler Symphonycriticizes the Nazi regime and oppression. Nicole Lizee, a Montreal composer known for her inventiveness and creativity, will propose a multimedia work for orchestra.
