"Voyage au coeur de l'impressionnisme" (The Heart of Impressionism)

Location: Quebec, Canada
Choir type: Community Choirs
Voicing: Mixed
Dal Segno Vocal Ensemble is proud to present, for the first time in Quebec City, swiss born Frank Martin's Mass for double chorus (a cappella) on May 10th 2014, 8 pm. While being a grandiose but yet very intimate work, it was written in the heart of the impressionistic period best represented by Claude Debussy. Martin would actually compare his musical style with the one of the French master. The concert will also present a very interesting work by Lili Boulanger, first woman composer to win the prestigious "Prix de Rome" in 1913. Works by Marcel Dupré (also recipient of the "Prix de Rome" in 1914), Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel will also be featured in the program. Ensemble vocal Dal Segno - Québec, Canada will also present an unedited work by Quebec composer Denis Bédard.
