Concert change: Ehnes Quartet is replaced by James Ehnes and Charles Richard-Hamelin.
Hailed as “an important new force in the chamber music arena” with a “dream-team line-up” (Strings), the Ehnes Quartet is comprised of four internationally renowned string musicians: violinists James Ehnes and Amy Schwartz Moretti, violist Richard O’Neill, and cellist Edward Arron.
“These four string virtuosos animate every note with uncommon power and passion as well as elegance. Listen and weep.” (Toronto Star)
Consisting of the concertmasters and principal cellist and violist of the Montreal, Detroit, and Toronto Symphonies, the New Orford String Quartet has been described as “nothing short of electrifying” by the Toronto Star.
For this concert, each ensemble will play a favourite Beethoven quartet and then join forces for the Enescu Octet.
