Works by Debussy, Leclair, Sokolović.

Two concertos and two premieres in the space of two hours: the Orchestre 21 hasn’t got cold feet. Paolo Bellomia will conduct Sokolović’s concerto — introspective, “simply human” music — as well as Debussy’s, showcasing the talented Jimmy Brière. Also on the programme, a never-performed tale in music by Debussy, and a premiere by Leclair. In short, a large-scale undertaking for a fearless orchestra! The production is supported by the CALQ.
