The Carnaval de Venise in Montreal (2008)

Creation for soloist with 3 trumpets and orchestra

“Lustily applauded, with good reason, by the crowd when the recital came to an end on another excellent note.”

The Carnaval de Venise in Montreal for cornet, flugelhorn, B-flat trumpet and a soloist has been presented more than 25 times with ensemble.

Frédéric Demers has reclaimed for himself the last variation of this collection, which comprises the most audacious passages stemming from the unbridled imagination of three cornet legends. No one remains unmoved by the sheer extravagance of the cadenzas composed by Frédéric Demers, performed with a touch of humour that remains truly his own.
