Pemi Paul giving a stunning and highly personalized performance of the Bach Chaconne over appetizers. Clarinetist Mark Bradley then performed Stravinsky's seminal Three Pieces for clarinet solo, exploring different characters that this highly versatile wind instrument is capable of taking on. Next, violinist Mira Benjamin gave her best rendition yet of Taylor Brook's Vocalise, with a drone in the dining room and one in the upstairs computer room.
Portmantô is delighted by the opportunity to perform in intimate and unusual venues; speak to us if you recently have been feeling that your chambers are unusually devoid of live performers. Music in these environments speaks in an entirely different voice than the concert stage and provides our patrons a creative way to support Montréal's performing arts community.
Live concerts in your home. How exotic!
