Production McGill Schulich School of Music

Made up of McGill University students, the Contemporary Music Ensemble (CME) has programmed Ana Sokolović’s Géométrie sentimentale for this fall. “The same story, told by three witnesses; the same material, viewed from three different angles… The sharpness of the triangle, the pleasantness of the circle, the opinionatedness of the square… ” This is how the composer describes this enigmatically titled work, to be conducted by the young and highly dynamic Cristian Gort.

Composing in the Present!

The SMCQ has been moving in step with the lively rhythms of new music for almost fifty years. With its regular concert season, its Série hommage (Homage Series), an international festival, and a young listener’s programme, the society has served both as a platform for today’s composers and as a window on creative works for everyone.
