About Misceo

Misceo evokes by its etymological and conceptual definition the mixtures of influences and miscegenation. The program highlights works written by composers who have distinguished themselves by their writing and their singular color. Just like Claude Debussy in France, Edward Grieg in Norway or Belà Bartok in Hungary at the beginning of the 20th century, the composers of this program perpetuate and bring to life the soul of their culture through their music. Works with a more traditional discourse are mixed with avant-garde or contemporary ones to offer you a slide show linked by the theme of folklore.

Misceo offers a repertoire ranging from 1970 to today highlighting Rasch works by George Aperghis (Greece), Naturale, by Luciano Berio (Italy), Dmaathen, by Iannis Xenakis (Greece) in addition to creations specially composed for the project by Ana Sokolovic (Serbia-Canada) and by the composer Anishinaabe Melody McKiver where the trio is sometimes reunited or deconstructed into duets.

Each composer presented evokes in a very personal way his contribution to tradition and culture. In Berio, Sokolovic and McKiver, the inspiration of respectively Italian, Serbian and indigenous folklore is obvious and assumed, while in Aperghis and Xenakis, the influences of Greek folklore are symbolized more by specific writing techniques.

This concert is recommended for both contemporary music enthusiasts and curious audiences wishing to discover the many faces of percussion, the saxophone and the viola.

Marina Thibeault

Violist Marina Thibeault’s “plangent tone and expressive phrasing” (The Strad) foreground a great richness in its playing that is on display across genres. Since being named Radio-Canada's classical "Revelation" for 2016-2017, Marina has delighted audiences across Canada, the United States, and Europe with their elegant, spellbinding performances and engaging presence.


An accomplished soloist, Marina's many performance highlights include Berlioz's Harold in Italy with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Orchestre Métropolitain in Montreal and the North American premiere of Peteris Vasks's concerto with the Sinfonia Toronto.
