Program notes

Get to know the winning composers of the 2020 edition of the Azrieli Music Prizes in this gala concert! Founded in 2014 on the initiative of the Azrieli Foundation, the prize aims to discover and promote new music, encouraging ensembles to perform and celebrate current composers—featuring a new category this year, the Azrieli Commission for Canadian Music. The three laureates will hear their work performed for the first time during this exceptional event, held at the Salle Bourgie of the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts!
