TURNING A PAGE<br />

As we enter our 12th season, I am about to<br />

pass the torch to someone else. We've come a<br />

long way since <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall opened its doors<br />

in September 2011! I could line up columns<br />

of numbers: 1,860 concerts, complete works,<br />

discoveries, hundreds and hundreds of musicians<br />

from here and elsewhere...<br />

But what persists in my mind are the countless<br />

moments of pure joy, those unforgettable<br />

instances when the music takes on its full<br />

meaning, when the sounds fill this magnificent<br />

space and when time stands still; moments of<br />

listening and sharing so intense that our hearts<br />

and minds are transported.<br />

The <strong>2022</strong>-<strong>2023</strong> season will be similar to<br />

the previous ones, though with a few events<br />

to mark my departure. Notably, these include<br />

an invitation from Ensemble Caprice for a<br />

carte blanche concert on September 18,<br />

a farewell concert on January 21 to which<br />

the public is invited free of charge, and the<br />

final concert of the Complete Cantatas of<br />

J.S. Bach on March 26, when musicians from<br />

the Orchestre Métropolitain conducted by<br />

Yannick Nézet-Séguin will perform the famous<br />

Cantata 147, which inaugurated this cycle in<br />

September 2014 with Kent Nagano and musicians<br />

from the OSM. Between the beginning and the<br />

conclusion of this great exploit, we will have<br />

heard more than 200 works encompassing an<br />

extraordinary diversity of expression and feeling.<br />

Together and individually, Bach’s sacred cantatas<br />

constitute a tremendous sonic and spiritual<br />

universe. I hope that many of you will come to<br />

share with us the conclusion of this exceptional<br />

achievement, which is a first in Canada.<br />

I cannot close without thanking the countless<br />

people who have accompanied me on the<br />

fabulous adventure of <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall’s creation.<br />

I wish to at least mention one name: Pierre <strong>Bourgie</strong>.<br />

I believe that music will continue to resonate<br />

in <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall, a place synonymous with<br />

conviviality, beauty, and harmony. And I know<br />

that you, dear audience, will be there to keep our<br />

cherished venue going for a long time to come.<br />

MESSAGES FROM THE DIRECTORS


On March 2, <strong>2022</strong>, <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall was finally able to<br />

welcome audiences back at full capacity. All the<br />

hardship we endured around the long months of<br />

confinement, partial reopenings and reclosures<br />

has made the joy we feel today in presenting<br />

this new season to you all the sweeter. Dear<br />

music lovers, we wish you a happy return to your<br />

cherished concert hall!<br />

The time has come when we can freely indulge<br />

in art in order to recharge our batteries, stimulate<br />

our minds, take time to ourselves, experience<br />

wonder and be moved. We have come to realize<br />

that experiencing art is actually vital to our lives.<br />

If we weren’t aware of it already, the events of<br />

the last months have also reminded us of how<br />

privileged we are to be able to make art a part of<br />

our daily lives.<br />

This year, <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall has yet again developed<br />

a vast array of activities that is sure to resonate<br />

with each person in a unique way. Music is a<br />

living being with its own beating heart, but when<br />

combined with the visual arts, it sings. True<br />

to tradition, <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall has created concert<br />

programming in connection with our two fall<br />

exhibitions, Seeing Loud: Basquiat and Music,<br />

and Music Born of the Cold: Inuit Art, Dance<br />

and Song, which themselves examine the<br />

interrelationship between sound and sight.<br />

In closing, I invite you to join me in congratulating<br />

Isolde Lagacé, who is retiring after 15 years at the<br />

helm of Arte Musica. It is Isolde’s spirit that has<br />

pervaded the many seasons you have enjoyed.<br />

The sheer excellence of her programming has<br />

made this hall into a music venue par excellence<br />

in Quebec, and a musical destination for the world<br />

at large. On that note … let the music play!<br />

To mark the tricentenary of Book I of J.S. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier,<br />

Geneviève Soly will give a lecture to complement four concerts with<br />

commentary, leading audiences to deepen their appreciation of the<br />

direct listeners to grasping the essence of Bach’s profoundly spiritual<br />

discourse. Two <strong>Bourgie</strong> Hall instruments will be used: the Flemish<br />

harpsichord by Keith Hill and the Opus 2 organ by Hellmuth Wolff.<br />

throughout the performance. An<br />

In this lecture, the musicologist and<br />

performer explains her approach to<br />

the collection that Gilles Cantagrel<br />

qualified as a “Treatise on the<br />

passions of the soul.” Identifying<br />

the underlying narrative of its<br />

24 preludes and fugues, Geneviève<br />

Soly presents her method of<br />

analysis, combining elements<br />

of Bach’s thought, Lutheranism, and<br />

musical rhetoric specific to<br />

the Baroque discourse.<br />

Presented in French.<br />

In connection with the concert-lectures<br />

on the complete First Book of the<br />

Well-Tempered Clavier by J.S. Bach<br />

The lecture is free of charge for anyone<br />

who has purchased a ticket for one of<br />

the concert-lectures.<br />

In collaboration with Les Idées heureuses<br />

As musicians and poets,<br />

troubadours found the right “words<br />

and sounds” to sing, in the Occitan<br />

language, of the fin’amor, or courtly<br />

love. Rooted in the chivalrous<br />

society at the time of the Crusades,<br />

this new art of living celebrated<br />

the Lady, an idealized woman<br />

capable of inspiring outpourings of<br />

sublime, passionate and mysterious<br />

love. The source of this lyric<br />

poetry created waves across the<br />

centuries, up until our day. Was it<br />

the troubadours who invented Love<br />

as we know it in Western societies?<br />

Presented in French.<br />

In connection with the Diabolus in Musica<br />

Guest curator of the exhibition<br />

Music Born of the Cold, the<br />

ethnomusicologist Jean-Jacques<br />

Nattiez will show how the Inuit<br />

represented their music through<br />

their sculptures and engravings.<br />

We will discover that the two<br />

main genres—drum dancing and<br />

throat singing—are musically very<br />

different but possess, nonetheless,<br />

common characteristics, such as<br />

the demonstration of endurance<br />

and the spirit of competition,<br />

which in turn allows us to speak<br />

of a characteristic Inuit music.<br />

Presented in French.<br />
