Les chants de mon pays
Les chants de mon pays/ Québec Palais MontcalmBorn in Haiti, Marie-Josée Lord arrived in her new country, Quebec, at the age of 6. From the very beginning, she was quickly immersed in a new musical culture, inherited from her adoptive parents, who introduced her to the world of the great songwriters. At a very young age, the texts of these great Quebec poets will be for her a place of escape, carried by the imagination of words. Gilles Vigneault, Félix Leclerc, Robert Charlebois, Claude Dubois, Diane Juster, Monique Leyrac, Luc Plamondon, Gaston Miron, to name but a few, have cradled my poetic and sound universe. Their poetry and their stories made me love words and, supported by music, these words became for me travels, escape and parallel universe. With this show: Les chants de mon pays, I want to pay tribute to its pillars and national treasures. Because thanks to them, Quebec has been able to make its existence known beyond its borders. Their words and their music are today a heritage for the future generations.
Ode to Joy! – Beethoven’s Ninth
On her new album Femmes, Marie-Josée Lord incarnates with passion heroines from Verdi, Puccini and Massenet operas. The sparkling Canadian soprano gives life to some of the most beautiful characters on the opera like que Violetta (La Traviata), Aïda (Aïda), Cio-Cio-San (Madama Butterfly), or even more Thaïs (Thaïs) et Salomé (Hérodiade). The Symphonic Orchestra of Laval, under the direction of Alain Trudel, accompanies Marie-Josée Lord on this remarkable album.
