The SMCQ presents Chutes libres, a concert entirely dedicated to Maryvonne Kendergi, the “grandmother” of Quebec composers, who passed away recently. Ana Sokolović will have a generous space carved out for her, in a concert featuring premieres plus a well-loved favorite. Also: Marc Boivin’s filmed new improvisation of Milhaud’s La création du monde (1923). This concert, in keeping with Le Vivier’s season, will be preceded by a round-table discussion with Françoise Davoine.

In preparation for the Chutes libres concert, a musicologist and two composers discuss their works.

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.
