One of the newest and hottest celebrities in Montrealís music scene is undoubtedly the Montreal Symphony Orchestraís new artistic director Kent Nagano, who officially took the helm last September. Fans and critics alike are fascinated by the multi-faceted man. La Scena Musicale has been keeping track of Nagano these past two years and in our in-depth interview, we give you some insight into what makes the maestro tick. Itís a ďmustĒ read in this issue!

In addition, we recognize the 40th anniversary of the SMCQ, the first Canadian institution dedicated to advancing the cause of contemporary music.

December is also the time for holiday festivities with family and friends. So much to do, so little time! Check out our recording reviews and gift section to get ideas for that music student and music lover in your life. You might also consider giving the gift that keeps giving all year round by treating a loved one with a La Scena Musicale subscription and / or a limited edition 10th Anniversary Coffee Cup (see pages 6 and 7). When you need a break from your busy schedule, pamper yourself with some live music by consulting our regional calendar for the seasonís concert listings.

On behalf of the hard-working team of staff and volunteers at La Scena Musicale, I wish you and yours much peace and joy during the holidays, and an amazing 2007 filled with music, music and more music!
