I Musici de Montréal concert
available as a Webcast

Charles Richard-Hamelin and Stéphane Beaulac at Salle Pierre-Mercure, Centre Pierre-Péladeau

March 7, 2022

For its first full-capacity concert in over two years, I Musici de Montréal Chamber Orchestra is proud to welcome the great Quebec pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin and the seasoned trumpeter Stéphane Beaulac, on Thursday, March 24, at 2:00 p.m. and 7:30 p.m., in Salle Pierre-Mercure at the Centre Pierre-Péladeau. The concert will be available for webcast from March 31 to April 17.

“Here we are in the heart of I Musici’s great fundamental repertoire. While the composer’s Valses d’amour are full of tenderness, the adaptation of Shostakovich’s Third Quartet radiates ardour and intensity.

The concert will be available as a webcast from 31 March to 17 April.

“And who better than the beloved pianist Charles Richard-Hamelin and the great trumpeter Stéphane Beaulac to give us this double concerto that Shostakovich composed when he was still in his twenties?” – says Jean-François Rivest, artistic advisor and principal guest conductor.

Charles Richard-Hamelin

Charles Richard-Hamelin performed as a soloist throughout the world with renowned orchestras and conductors. Among other distinctions, he was awarded the silver medal at the Frederic Chopin International Piano Competition in Warsaw (2015). In 2014, he also won second prize at the Montreal International Music Competition and third prize at the Seoul International Music Competition in South Korea.

Stéphane Beaulac

Stéphane Beaulac performed various concertos with the OM, I Musici de Montréal, the Orchestre symphonique de Drummondville and the Hannaford Street Silver Band of Toronto, as a soloist. From 2014 to 2017, he was a member of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra as third trumpet.
