Performance Notes

× A mari usque ad mare

Combined, these string quartets create an ensemble of perfect harmony. The Saguenay Quartet (QC) — violinists Marie Bégin and Nathalie Camus, violist Luc Beauchemin, and cellist David Ellis — have developed a prestigious reputation for excellence. The Lafayette String Quartet (BC) — violinists Ann Elliott-Goldschmid and Sharon Stanis, violist Joanna Hood, and cellist Pamela Highbaugh Aloni — are hailed as passionate and riveting, a flawless ensemble.

Program Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major Op. 20; Niels Gade’s Octet Op. 17; a newly commissioned piece from the Canadian composer Airat Ichmouratov.
