Jonathan Cohen travels to Quebec for the opening concerts of his first season as Music Director of Les Violons du Roy. His first programme features music by Handel and Philip Glass with the countertenor Antony Roth Costanzo, and will be performed at both the Salle Raoul-Jobin, Palais Montcalm in Quebec and the Maison Symphonique de Montréal. The same programme will then tour the US in October and is shortly to be released for Decca Gold.
When being interviewed, Jonathan expressed his excitement about starting this position, “I get to look forward to spending years with these simply amazing musicians, people with whom the never-ending search for beauty and musical meaning happens so naturally and respectfully—it’s just such a pleasure. I’m really thrilled to join the Les Violons du Roy adventure and have the opportunity to contribute my own artistic vision.”
