Notes and Editorial Reviews

Following the enthusiastic response to the 2017 ATMA Classique release of the "Concerto de Québec" by André Mathieu, pianist Jean-Philippe Sylvestre returns as vigorous as ever with a new recording which, once again, features a work by Mathieu — his Piano Concerto No. 4 — and includes Rachmaninov’s Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. The recording was made during the Festival Classica with the Orchestre Métropolitain under the attentive direction of Alain Trudel. Most recently, Mrl Sylvestre has performed with the Orchestre symphonique de Quebec at Bourgie Hall and Place des Arts in Montreal, at Iles de la Madeleine, at St. Pierre des cuisines auditorium in Toulouse, Corlot Hall in Paris, and Palais des Read more beaux-arts in Brussels. He recently appeared in concert in Montreal and Halifax with such renowned musicians as Stephane Tetrault, Alain Trudel, and Dominic Desautels. Read less
