Gilles Tremblay (2009-10 Season)

As Global Citizens, we have inherited the task of choosing our heros, of etching them into our hearts and lives, of drawing inspiration from them in both good and bad times.

Gilles Tremblay

His studies at the Conservatoire de musique du Québec and the Paris Conservatory and more importantly the number of seasoned musicians who participated in his professional training, resulted in Tremblay becoming one of the most well-rounded composers of his generation. Indeed, after benefitting from the teaching of Claude Champagne, Jean Papineau-Couture, Isabelle Delorme, Jean Vallerand and Germaine Malépart in Montréal, he moved to Paris where among his studies, he took Olivier Messiaen’s famed analysis courses. His stay in Europe also enabled him to attend summer courses in Darmstadt and to meet some of the pillars of 20th century music.
