Finally, I can tell you about it: I am the new composer in residence of the Festival classique des Hautes-Laurentides. During this résidence, I will begin the composition of a concerto for violin and orchestra for the reputated violonist and artistic director of the Festival, Alexandre Da Costa

It was planned for a long time, actually since my meeting with Alexandre during the concert of the Orchestre de la Francophonie, who played Urbania at Mont-Laurier, during the Festival. On his side, Alexandre Da Costa played Mozart's Concerto for violon no 5. With a mutual admiration, the project started.

The composer residence is part of the stimulus plan of the Festival classique des Hautes-Laurentides, elaborated by its new general directress Martine Cardinal. For this occasion, the theme of the concerto will be the region of the Hautes-Laurentides. Now I need to discover how I will figure to follow this theme musically...

It is also planned that I do arrangements, lectures... Of course, I will write you about it here!
