Marie-Hélène Breault

Marie-Hélène Breault, as a flutist, specializes in performance of 20th and 21st century music. As a soloist and chamber musician, she distinguished herself by her performances of Karlheinz Stockhausen’s works and in premiering works by Katia Makdissi-Warren, Gabriel Dharmoo, Andrew Staniland, Emily Hall, René Orea, Analía Llugdar, and Martijn Voorvelt. Her repertoire also includes works by Edgard Varèse, Pierre Boulez, Luciano Berio, Gilles Mottet, Toru Takemitsu, Gilles Tremblay, Denis Gougeon, and Yves Daoust, to name but a few. She performs regularly with Société de musique contemporaine du Québec (SMCQ) and with Ensemble contemporain de Montréal (ECM+) and she also touches on classical repertoire and improvisation in various projects, notably with pianist Pamela Reimer, with whom she has a duo. Over the years she played with Jeunesses musicales Canada, Innovations en concert, OktoÉcho, Codes d’accès, and Sixtrum. She also co-authored pieces with composers Katia Makdissi-Warren (2012, ’21) and Martin Bédard (2013, ’17). More
