Creatures of Habit , Oscar Peterson


Oscar Peterson

Opening act: Creatures of Habit, winner of the 1990 Alcan Jazz Competition
For the closing concert, the Festival has invited one of the greatest musicians of ail time: pianist Oscar Peterson. During his long and very distinguished career, he crossed paths with the world's most renowned musicians, garnering countless prizes and distinctions along the way. At 64, he maintains a busy schedule the world over, and he is still very much in demand. Montréal-born Oscar Peterson is a superstar in the history of jazz. In 1984, he performed in the fifth edition of the Festival, at the Forum, with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal and Charles Dutoit, who were making their Festival début. For his first Montréal appearance in five years, Oscar Peterson has chosen a more intimate setting, and will be accompanied by his trio. The winner of this year's Alcan Jazz Competition, to be announced prior to the concert, will perform as opening act. Quite a gala evening in the offing!
