Since 1985, PENTAÈDRE is dedicated to the discovery of a varied chamber music repertoire, original and often less known. Passionate chamber musicians, its members explore the classical repertoire for wind quintet as well as orchestral works or transcriptions. Over the past ten years the ensemble has established collaborations with renowned artists like Christoph Prégardien and Rufus Müller (tenors), Russell Braun and Phillip Addis (baritones), Karina Gauvin (soprano), Naida Cole, David Jalbert and Iwan Llewelyn-Jones (piano), also with chamber music ensembles such as the Penderecki String Quartet and the Arthur-LeBlanc Quartet. The group has been heard in most major chamber music festivals in Eastern Canada and has toured in Canada, Europe and the United States. Last March, the ensemble’s last recording won the exceptional mention « Stern des Monats » in the German magazine Fono Forum. This recognition for its chamber version of Schubert’s Winterreise adds up to excellent performance reviews for its original shows L’amour est un opéra muet and A Chair in love. In May 2011, to celebrate its 25th season, Pentaèdre will present an exceptional Mahler 100 Years Event, with tenor Christoph Prégardien and contralto Marie-Nicole Lemieux.
