We are happy to invite guitarists from everywhere to compete in the first edition of the Société de guitare de Montréal’s Next Generation Competition, presented online through YouTube. Over $1,000 in prizes! Thanks to the sponsors of this event: les Productions d’Oz and Grand salon de guitare.
During this concert-lecture, guitarist Pascal Valois will take the audience on a journey through three important periods of the history of one of the most-played string instruments in the world. From the sumptuous and luxuriant Parisian repertoire of the end of the 18th century, to the Viennese repertoire of the 1840s—the veritable swansong of the Romantic guitar—by way of the Italian sonata of the 1820s and its bel canto veneer, through his use of period instruments Pascal Valois will contextualize landmark works illustrating the evolution of the guitar.
Presented by Bourgie Hall in partnership with the Société de guitare de Montréal
