Orgue 23-24

Stravinsky and Ravel on the Organ

Stravinsky and Ravel on the Organ

Maison symphonique de Montréal



Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring and Ravel’s Bolero are two signature works of the OSM’s repertoire. But have you ever heard them played on the organ? Four acclaimed organists invite you to discover these masterpieces in truly remarkable versions for the “King of instruments”. The Grand Orgue Pierre-Béique will take on orchestral dimensions for this concert that reinvents two well-known summits of classical music, made possible by the organ’s powerful, contrasting timbres. Come and experience an extraordinary moment!
