Louise Bessette makes the news
Saturday, October 26 at 8pm, at the Centennial Theatre (Bishop’s University, Lennoxville, Qc) Louise Bessette will be presenting a program of music from her upcoming CD entitled Tango Diablo!
The program includes masterpieces by Albeniz, Stravinsky, Schulhoff, and Piazzolla, in addition to the Für Louise written by Raoul Sosa, and Antoine's Tango, a lullaby-tango written in 2001 by the American Barbara Kolb and dedicated to Louise Bessette's son.
Louise Bessette has also chosen tangos stemming from Yvar Mikhashoff’s (1945-1993) Elastic Roses project. For this project, he commissioned 88 tangos from composers in 30 countries. Among Ms. Bessette’s selections are the following enticingly-titled tangos: Incitation to desire by C. Biscardi, The Exile's Café by M. Sahl, Tango Dreaming by C. Bright, the amusing Fromage dangereux by W. Schimmel, and the “tango comique” by R. Berkman, Thorn-Torn Lips.

Louise Bessette & Lise Daoust
Thursday October 31 at 12:00, flutist Lise Daoust will join Louise Bessette for a duo concert. The Studio-Théâtre Stella-Artois de la Place des arts will resonate with the sound of Mozart’s sonatas in F major and C major, Quebecois jazzwoman Lorraine Desmarais’ Sonata for flute and piano, as well as a selection of Ragtimes by Scott Joplin.
