Tune in here on Monday, April 17 at 7PM (ET) for a special performance featuring music by Arensky, Debussy and Ravel

We're coming to you from Montreal, Canada for a special "Health and Wellness" Concert, presented by the Montreal Chamber Music Festival.

In 2022, the MCMF initiated Health and Wellness Concerts at the CHUM (University of Montreal Health Centre) hospital in Montreal.

As one of the earliest victims of Covid 19, the Festival’s Artistic Director, Denis Brott fought a long and life-threatening battle with Covid enduring 32 days on a respirator in an induced coma and a total of 45 days in hospital. Thanks to the care he received at CHUM his life was saved.

In gratitude, Denis created a concert series for the hospital to share music’s healing powers with patients and healthcare workers alike. These concerts were performed live before an audience of 200 at the hospital’s Péladeau Amphitheatre and were recorded for broadcast on closed-circuit television in patients' rooms and throughout the hospital network.

This initiative has become an important element of the Festival’s ongoing mission to bring live chamber music to a diverse audience.



Arensky | Quartet No.2 in A minor, Op. 35 for violin, viola and 2 cellos

Debussy | Danse sacrée et danse profane for harp and strings

Valérie Milot (Harp) | Giora Schmidt, Eva Lesage-Sokolovic (Violin) | Sebastian Gonzalez Mora (Viola) | Denis Brott, Noémie Raymond-Friset (Cello) | Arianne Brisson (Flute) | Martin Carpentier (Clarinet)
