    • Festival Orford Musique 2023 : Complètement Schubert : Die Forelle


      Mathieu Gaudet is a pianist with an unusual background who has truly made a vocation of Schubert’s works. Among the pieces on the program are the Four Impromptus, D. 899. These tremendously popular works were written in the fall of 1827. The first and third Impromptus are in a more lyrical vein, while the second and fourth have more of an étude feel. As you’re carried along on these streams of melody, you’ll be touched by the essence of the composer and his world. Be there for the ride!



      Repertoire Overview

      FRANZ SCHUBERT (1797–1828)

      Twelve German Dances, D. 790
      Sonata No. 19 in C Minor, D. 958
      Four Impromptus, D. 899 (first set)


      A versatile, passionate musician, Mathieu Gaudet has pursued a remarkable career as a soloist, chamber musician, and conductor for the past twenty years. He commands a vast repertoire of works and has performed across Canada, the United States, Europe, and Asia. His concerts and recordings are regularly broadcast on the French and English services of the CBC. Since 2019, Mr. Gaudet has been recording the complete piano music of Franz Schubert on the Analekta label, a project that will include fifteen albums. Volume 6 « Relics » came out in March 2022 and volume 7 « The Wanderer » is available since October 2022. The first and third volumes were nominated for a prize at the ADISQ gala.

      This season Mathieu Gaudet is playing at the Cecilia Concerts series in Halifax, NS, at the DOMS series in Ottawa, ON and was at the center of a Schubert festival at the Concerts et rencontres champêtres in Abercorn, QC. He has recently played Schumann’s piano Concerto with the Saguenay Symphonic Orchestra and Chopin concerto no. 2 with the Kamloops Symphonic Orchestra. Mathieu Gaudet obtained the Master of Music degree from the prestigious Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, where he studied with Julian Martin, subsequently perfecting his training with Leon Fleisher.

      In 2007 he graduated Doctor of Music in Performance from the Faculty of Music of Université de Montréal under Paul Stewart.
