A historic and unique meeting, Les Violons du Roy and the ensemble I Musici de Montréal have pooled their strengths and talents for two concerts presented in Montreal and Quebec City in May. A show where 40 musicians perform Corelli's Concerto grosso, in which violinist Pascale Giguère shines, as well as Where the night is by Montreal composer Stacey Brown. The piece de resistance is the dramatic work La nuit transfigurée by Arnold Schoenberg. It's available until June 12 via webcast.

Funerals sometimes have surprises in store for us. But learning that our father led different lives at the same time? That's pretty rare. Yet this is what journalist and author Patrick Delisle-Crevier experienced. Orphaned in his thirties, he then discovered a family made up of a dozen half-brothers and half-sisters. His story, completely true, he details with color and emotion in My Father in the Moukmouk Islands, a book that you devour in one sitting... like "a pizza and a cream soda at the local restaurant".
