Après un Rêve
Friday, November 1 , 2019, 7:30 p.m.
Ravel - Duo for Violin and Cello
Fauré - Quartet for Piano in C Minor
Francine Kay, Piano
Victor Fournelle-Blain, Viola
To express that which is within you with sincerity, in the clearest and most perfect manner, would seem to me the ultimate goal of art.
We open the program with Maurice Ravel, Lili Boulanger, and Vieuxtemps, followed by Gabriel Fauré.
Ravel's Duo for Violin and Cello reflects one of the musical movements of early 20th century Europe, the incorporation of the rich tradition of folk music and its passionate rhythmic verve. Fauré's charming and elegant Quartet for Piano in C Minor takes us on an emotional journey, from the lighthearted melodic beginnings to the grandeur and intensity of the finale.
Canadian piano virtuoso Francine Kay joins us for this quintessentially French program that has us longing for romantic days gone by.
Brahms and Beyond
Sunday, March 8 , 2020, 3:00 p.m.
Brahms - Clarinet Quintet
Kulesha - Trio for Violin, Viola, and Cello
Eric Abramovitz, Clarinet
A beautiful Sunday afternoon for Concert 2 featuring guest clarinetist Eric Abramovitz. We turn to Brahms, a composer, pianist, and conductor during the Romantic period firmly rooted in the structures and compositional techniques of the Classical masters. The Clarinet Quintet is considered to be one of the most exquisitely beautiful pieces of chamber music ever written. Brahms' writing for the clarinet is considered by many to be absolute perfection. Combined with the ensemble writing, this extraordinary piece highlights the glorious colours of each instrument.
This incredible rich tapestry of sound from the masters inspires and captivates the imagination. As a young composer, Gary Kulesha fell under the influence of many of the great composers of the past. Kulesha wrote his Trio for Violin, Viola and Cello when he was only 16 years old, at a time in which chamber music had a profound impact on his life, and ultimately his contribution to the evolution of the genre in the 20th Century and beyond.
Friday, May 15th , 2020, 7:30 p.m.
Mendelssohn - String Quintet
Brahms - Sextet
Jonathan Crow, Violin
Emmanuelle Beaulieu Bergeron, Cello
Our final concert of the season will be a triumphant celebration of strings honouring two of Hamburg's native sons - Mendelssohn and Brahms. These are two Romantic period masters with their musical style and influence firmly rooted in the Classics.
A sensational finale to the season with your favourite string ensemble masterpieces!
