Oscar Peterson

avec Niels Henning Orsted Pedersoon (NHOP), Lorne Lofsky, Martin Drew
Who better to launch the festivities than the Master himself? The celebrated Montréal pianist takes to the stage for one of his rare performances. Throughout his incredible career, Oscar Peterson has played with the greatest names in jazz while garnering accolades and delighting audiences. For this event, he'll be accompanied by Danish doublebassist Niels Henning Ørsted Pedersen, guitarist Lorne Lofsky and drummer Martin Drew. A peerless technician, Oscar Peterson is endowed with a magnetism that characterizes those who've developed an absolute mastery of their art. In 1984, his memorable concert with the Montréal Symphony Orchestra and Charles Dutoit was a highlight of the Festival's 5th edition. In 1989, he closed the 10th edition and received the first annual Oscar Peterson Prize. What more fitting than to invite this gentleman to open the sixteenth Festival?
