2024 Season

This year Les Printemps Slaves is exploring new territories by converging two music styles that are usually perceived as very different, but they share multiple similarities: classical and jazz.

From Shostakovich’s Jazz Suites to the studies of Nikolai Kapustin via Stravinsky’s Soldier’s Tale, we will explore this fascinating in-between where many Slavic composers ventured, fascinated by the new colors offered to them by this all new music arriving from America. And we will have the pleasure of doing it in the company of fascinating musicians: Matt Herskowitz, who will delight us with his improvisations on the music of Chopin, the fantastic trio formed by André Moisan, Olivier Thouin and Jean Saulnier, our long-time partner the New Generation Orchestra, pianist Ilya Poletaev, guitarist Christ Habib… to name just a few of the fantastic artists that you will be able to discover during our 2024 edition!

So, put on your best vintage outfits and join us for a slavic spring full of jazz and swing!
