the Amsterdam Concertgebouw and Radio-Berlin, established him as a leading performer. In the orchestral field, Mr. Moisan has worked under renowned conductors, mainly with the Orchestre symphonique de Montréal. He first performed with that Orchestra in 1977, under Andrew Davis,
and made his first solo appearance in 1997 with Charles Dutoit. Since May 1999 he has held the position of principal saxophone and bass clarinet. Besides his work as a concert and recital artist, André Moisan is also a conductor. Winner of many awards, André Moisan was nominated for Opus prizes in four consecutive years as soloist, chamber-music player and conductor. André Moisan is known for his eclecticism. He’s always crossing musical borders — to move from classical music to jazz, via klezmer and world music, for instance — so as to explore different styles. He currently teaches at the Université de Montréal.
