Description:

Threshold is a point which must be exceeded by spontaneous reaction, phenomenon or effect. It is the starting point — the door that must be opened in order to experience something new. Ensemble Paramirabo (Montreal) and the Toy Piano Composers (Toronto) have teamed up to present a cross-country tour of their collaborative concert Threshold/Le Seuil. This interprovincial collaboration will feature six world premieres by the Toy Piano Composers (TPC), as performed by Montreal’s young and talented quintet, Ensemble Paramirabo.

The virtuosic ensemble, with an instrumentation of flute (Jeffrey Stonehouse), clarinet (François Gagné), piano (Gabrielle Gingras), violin (Geneviève Liboiron) and cello (Octavie Dostaler-Lalonde), will be exchanging their grand piano for the most playful of instruments - the toy piano, a symbol of fun, innovation, humour and imagination!
