Lorraine Vaillancourt, Conductor
NEM musicians

Iannis Xénakis (1922-2001, France), Phlegra (1975), for 11 instrumentalists
Luis de Pablo (1930-2021, Spain), Razon Dormida (2003), for 14 instrumentalists
Luis de Pablo (1930-2021, Spain), … Con alcune licenze (2005), for two instrumental groups and piano

On May 6, 2022, the NEM is offering a foray into the musical universes of two exceptional composers — Luis de Pablo, who passed away on October 10 last year, and Iannis Xenakis, whose centenary of birth we are celebrating this year.

Two artists who, each in their own way, have made their mark on their time by developing, sharing and handing down their passion for music and art. Indeed, the NEM intends to highlight the legacy of these two men, several of whose works have formed their own history.

This concert also marks the Ensemble’s first reunion with its audience since November 2019 in its place of residence: the Salle Claude-Champagne at the Université de Montréal’s Faculty of Music.

An NEM concert in its purest form!



(Friday) 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm(GMT-05:00)
