I'm a regular at the symphony and really appreciate the top-class programmes put on by Nagano et al. Montreal should count itself blessed to have such a wonderful venue and such amazing musicians. The hall itself is an understated spectacle, breathtaking in its own way,...More

Maison symphonique de Montreal is located at Place des Arts in the Quartier des Spectacles on Rue Saint-Urbain. It is home to the L'Orchestre Symphonique de Montreal (OSM) and other groups. The OSM music is director Kent Nagano. Loved the wooden interior and the acoustics.

Program: Helene Grimaud performing Bartok's 3rd Piano Concerto, then Mahler's 5th. Yannick Nezet-Seguin conducting. This is about as good as it gets, really. Oh, and we were literally in the front row, right in front of Helene. PRETTY INTENSE NIGHT!
