The Spicy Sounds of a Privateer's Horn
Composed by Bernard Falaise
MONTREAL, Feb. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - For this open-air concert, the sounds of
boats, locomotives, and other urban instruments, including the bells of
Notre-Dame Basilica, will join forces for a most unusual, original work. This
year, seven boats will take part in the symphony. Crowds can attend this
concert free of charge in the area in front of the Museum.
For this concert, the Museum is proposing an original composition
inspired by the pirates, privateers, and freebooters who criss-crossed the
waters of the St. Lawrence and the Maritimes in the 17th and 18th centuries.
Bernard Falaise will present his new work The Spicy Sounds of a Privateer's
Horn. Les Murènes will perform sea chanteys in Place Royale as a prelude
before the start of the Symphony.
