l’Orchestre Métropolitain, conducted by Maestro Yannick Nézet-Séguin, plays an aquatic-themed program inspired by the natural beauty of Canada.

La symphonie du fleuve (The Symphony of the River), produced by Parce Que Films features Smetana’s symphonic poem The Moldau, Odawa First Nation composer Barbara Assiginaak’s Eko-Bmijwang (As Long as the River Flows), and Debussy’s La Mer.

The performance, recorded at Sainte-Hélène Island’s Place Calder, is interwoven with breathtaking images of Canada’s natural beauty. From the St. Lawrence River to the Magdalen Islands, to Les Escoumins, the Gaspé Peninsula to the North Shore, and Natashquan to Bic National Park. This concert is a stunning cinematic experience.
