Here’s the poster for our concerts at the end of the month – an ambitious programme around the amazing 4th quartet of Bartok and a compelling work by Canadian Christos Hatzis, his first quartet, entitled ‘The Awakening’. The composer will be with us via Skype Sunday afternoon to discuss the piece, which is performed with a prepared tape track that juxtaposes Aboriginal throat singers with chordal clusters and plaintive locomotive calls. We’ve added ‘Fratres’ of Arvo Pärt to complete the programme. Come be with us the 22 or 24th of January at the Musée régional de Rimouski. QStG.
After our ODE AU SAINT-LAURENT concert on October 1, we’re taking time to prépare for our January concerts (Bartok, Pärt, Hatzis….more later on this project at the Musée régional de Rimouski at the end of January)…and to leave a little rehearsal time for Steeve and Elise to prepare for their SYMPHONIE CONCERTANTE de Mozart on the 3rd of December !
It’s the first time Steeve will play viola with orchestra, and the first time the Mozart is presented here in Rimouski with the Orchestre symphonique de l’Estuaire ! Hugues will play concertmaster, and James will be in his first chair cello position…so the Quatuor will be well represented !
We hope you will join us ( 3 décembre 20h Salle Desjardins-Telus Rimouski) !
À bientôt !
