The OSM invites you on an intergalactic musical voyage with Holst’s The Planets. From the thunderous tuttis of Mars to the enigmatic soundscape of Neptune, Holst contrasts orchestral colours to create a “series of mood pictures.” The Orchestra performs the Montreal premiere of Blurr is the Colour of my True Love’s Eyes by Canadian composer Nicole Lizée, a percussion concerto which evolves in a series of spirals that intertwine over the course of the work. 

ARTISTS 

Orchestre symphonique de Montréal 
Gemma New, conductor 
Colin Currie, percussion 
OSM Chorus  
Andrew Megill, chorusmaster 
The chorusmaster chair is generously sponsored by Mrs. Ann Birks, in loving memory of Barry Drummond Birks.
