44th Season from July 25 to 27, 2019

Program

Message from the artistic director

Dear music lovers,

It is with great pleasure that I invite you to a new edition of the Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival. For its 44th year, the Festival will take us off the beaten path as the musicians will pay homage to composers of the Renaissance and Classical periods, the latter of which has been strongly influenced by late Baroque works. The Festival will also feature the music of Antonio Vivaldi, who pushes the boundaries of virtuosity in his vocal and instrumental works, and Georg Philipp Telemann, arguably the most prolific composer of the Baroque era.

I am also very proud to announce the fourth Mathieu Duguay Early Music Competition. The event will be a great opportunity to discover three young soloists, specializing in Early Music, who will compete to win the Festival's highest honour. Thank you to all our partners and donors who are making this exceptional event possible.

More than forty artists will visit us in Lamèque this summer. We are delighted to welcome back many well- known faces, but also several young musicians who will perform in Lamèque for the first time. I am pleased to call to our stage, former artistic director of our Festival, conductor and bassoonist Mathieu Lussier. The Italian harpsichordist Francesco Corti, a true star on the Early Music scene in Europe, and several other remarkable soloists, will grace us with their fine talents.

The 2019 Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival promises surprising discoveries and moments of great emotion through unique exchanges between musicians and the public. Come celebrate with us!

 

Vincent Lauzer,
Artistic Director of the Lamèque International Baroque Music Festival
