Tuesday, July 9 / 8 p.m.
Showered with praise by audiences and critics alike, pianist Francesco Piemontesi appears for the first time in Quebec in a concert with the OSM, then in recital a few days later. He brings poetic sensitivity, elegant virtuosity, and probing insight to the boundless world of Bach, expanded through transcriptions of some of the composer’s most accomplished works, and to Schubert’s great Sonata in D major, D. 850.
