La Scena Musicale February 2010 Issue Details



[Version franł▀aise]



The Music Scene Winter 2010

Hello!

On behalf of La Scena Musicaleĺ─˘s dedicated staff and volunteers, I want to wish you a Happy 2010. We began the New Year with a new blog Todayĺ─˘s Classical Music Video as part of our 2010 digital strategy, which presents a music video pick each day.

Unfortunately, the year has already its share of sad music news. Record producer Pierre Dionne (of XXI Records), a dear friend to LSM and the Canadian classical music community, lost his battle with cancer last week. See below for funeral details.

In February, La Scena Musicale shines the spotlight on the young and budding musician.
  • Gracing our cover are pianist Wonny Song and violinist Alexandre da Costa, who both started their musical careers as young teens and serve as role models for other young musicians.
  • The monthly Discovery CD (in collaboration with XXI Records) will feature a double program by both Song (Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition) and da Costa (Vivaldi's Four Seasons).
  • This monthĺ─˘s focus on primary, secondary, and private music education includes our annual guide to schools plus related calendars, tips and articles, including conversations with top music educators, musicological scientists, professional adult and young performers.
  • Interview with 14 year old piano prodigy Jan Lisiecki.
  • Readers will also learn more about Yannick Nłęzet-Słęguin and the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestraĺ─˘s first ever North American tour which begins in February,
  • Montreal news such as the upcoming MusiMars Festival and the McGill Chamber Orchestra, which celebrates an important anniversary in 2010.
  • La Scena Musicale sits down with Prix dĺ─˘Arts-Affaires winner Maurice Forget, Apłęro łŢ lĺ─˘Opłęra of the Opłęra de Montrłęal winner Annie Sanschagrin and soprano Danielle de Niese.
  • Aria of the Month: The heart wrenching "Vissi d'arte" from Puccini's Tosca
All this and more from the worlds of Classical, Jazz, and World music ĺ─ý including our indispensable monthly reviews and concert previews and calendars.

The deadline for advertising in the February 2010 issue is January 25 with artwork due on January 26.

NEW Endowment Fund: 
Our application for the matching program, Placement Culture, has formally been accepted: for every dollar donated to LSM/TMS, the Qułębec government will contribute one dollar and fifty cents. Placement Culture is designed to create endowment funds for charitable arts groups like La Scene Musicale/The Music Scene. Our goal is to raise $100,000 until November 30, 2010, which combined with the government contribution, will create a $250,000 endowment. This will help us continue our magazines's excellence and innovation for years to come. We are therefore launching at this time our 2010 endowment fund campaign. Please join our fundraising committee or make a donation.

Please contact 514-948-2520 or info@lascena.org
