Event description
Les sons et les parfums tournent dans l'air du soir: Music of French and Mexican Composers

About this Event

The sonorities of France and Mexico perfume the air the last day of summer, when Canadian soprano Renée Bouthot and Mexican-American pianist, in her Canadian debut, join forces in concert. Their recital features vocal and piano works by Claude Debussy and Francis Poulenc, and contemporary Mexicans Federico Ibarra and Horacio Uribe - offering a mix of impressionistic music, evocative and surrealist poetry, and Mexican colour. The Mexican works will be heard in their Canadian premieres. The recital is a prelude to their appearances in October at the International Cervantino Festival in Guanajuato, the colonial city in central Mexico where the two musicians first met.

Soprano Renée Bouthot has sung in opera, music theatre, and concert across Canada and in Mexico. For the past several years she has appeared in chamber music concerts, championing the works of Canadian composers Milton Barnes and Srul Irving Glick, in particular.

Pianist Ana Cervantes is praised by critics for her "commanding intensity" (MusicWeb International, UK) and "great interpretive qualities" (unomásuno, México); and as "ambassadress for the music of Mexico" (Independent on Sunday, UK).
