Montréal's Palladium Duo

Ambassadors of a highly unique artistic approach to classical music, flutist Ariane Brisson and pianist Olivier Hébert-Bouchard formed Palladium Duo three years ago, and now the highly-accomplished team finds itself unlikely vanguards of Montréal's vibrant live music scene.

Brisson and Hébert-Bouchard have made a name for themselves reinventing the time-honoured combination of flute and piano through repertoire at times classic and controlled but also strikingly daring and contrasting. Covering more than 200 years of music, their Sunday, February 18th Halifax concert explores many unknown and familiar works by composers Bartók, Reinecke, Debussy, Roussel, and others. The concert takes place at 2pm at The Music Room, 6181 Lady Hammond Road in Halifax.

The winner of many national and international competitions including the Prix d’Europe, flutist Ariane Brisson studied at DePaul University in Chicago and the Université de Montréal. She regularly performs with les Violons du Roy and the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal.

Pianist Olivier Hébert-Bouchard is a graduate of the Conservatoire de musique de Trois-Rivières and of the Manhattan School of Music. Olivier has won numerous national and international competitions, including the Julia Crane International Piano Competition, the Gian Battista Viotti International Piano Competition and the OSM Standard Life competition.

Palladium Duo released their first album “Burlesque” in 2016.
