Weyburn-born pianist Meagan Milatz will perform a livestream concert today, April 7, at 5 p.m. Saskatchewan time (7 pm EST), as she performs in Montreal with cellist Cameron Crozman (named by CBC as “Canada's next big cello star"). “Cameron is also originally from the Prairies, born in Calgary, and he’s a truly incredible musician,” said Meagan in an email from her home in Montreal. They will be using a new platform for the livestream, called a440.live, which was designed by a young team of music entrepreneurs from France and U.S., helping to present classical music events.
The event will be free to access, but both Crozman and Milatz indicated they would appreciate any donations that listeners might want to make through the platform.
The program includes lots of 19th century Romantic music, as follows:
Five pieces in Popular Style, op. 102
I. Mit Humor "Vanitas vanitatum"
III. Nicht schnell, mit viel Ton zu spielen
IV. Nicht zu rasch
V. Stark und markiert
Sicilienne, op. 78
La Lugubre Gondola, S. 134bis
Sonata for cello and piano in g minor, op. 19
IV. Allegro mosso
