Duo Fortin-Poirier – Mémoires
Made up of pianists Amélie Fortin and Marie-Christine Poirier, Duo Fortin-Poirier have distinguished themselves with fiery four-hand interpretations, remarkable for their vitality and wit. A close affinity between their playing styles along with a sharp, shared sensitivity fuels their extraordinary ensemble playing. Since their inception in 2005, Duo Fortin-Poirier have made waves both in Canada and abroad, garnering scholarships, prizes, and other distinctions. Their performance of the concert Mémoires at the Festival de Musique de Chambre Concerts aux Îles du Bic (August 2017) earned them two (2) nominations at the last gala of Prix des Opus of the Conseil Québécois de la musique which took place in February 2018. The albums, Vingt doigts et un piano (2013) and Mémoires (2017) are broadcast regularly on Espace Musique, ICI Radio-Canada Première, and Radio-classique.
