Description




Verisimo, the Montreal-based chamber ensemble will be performing Igor Stravinsky's iconic L'histoire du Soldat on August 29, 2017 at 8pm at Sala Rossa (4848 blvd Saint-Laurent).This full performance of the theatrical chamber work will be "played, acted and danced" in tandem with film, making it an excellent event for the seasoned concert-goer and new audiences alike. Tickets are $10 and available online or at the door. Seating is limited.

Verisimo, a name inspired by the realism movement in late-romantic Italian opera, brings a touch of realism to the abstract concept of music by uniting with the art of film. Original films and repurposed footage have been edited to create a visual backdrop for classical and contemporary chamber music. Our exhibits screen these new films, produced specifically for our collective while accompanied by a live soundtrack of the pieces which inspired them. Artists, in both the fields of music and film, working in tandem to provide a new presentation of these two mediums, bring to this project a unique, creative and vibrant energy.

The performers include up and coming classical musicians and recent graduates of McGill University Hugo Rinfret-Paquet, David Koch, Christine Hoerning, Danielle Findlay, Alexander Haupt, Mie Hirschfeld, and Chris Paul. Founder of Verisimo Christine Hoerning says "We started off as a small trio playing staples of the classical and romantic chamber music repertoire. And undertaking like this, a full production of Stravinsky's Soldier's Tale, is the largest and perhaps most complex performance we have given but I am so lucky to be working with a team of such strong musicians and we can't wait to share our work!"
