(FROM SEA TO SEA)

MARCH 18 • 3pm

The Saguenay Quartet (recently renamed from Alcan) from Quebec and the Lafayette String Quartet from British Columbia combine more than a half century of chamber music making. Their joint program was created especially for the Celebration of Canada’s 150th anniversary and includes:

  • Mendelssohn’s octet in E-flat major op. 20
  • Niels Gade, String octet opus 17
  • Kelly-Marie Murphy (Canadian) Blues and the principles of excitation
  • A brand new commissioned piece from the Canadian composer: Airat Ichmouratov

The Saguenay Quartet – violinists Laura Andriani and Nathalie Camus, violist Luc Beauchemin, and cellist David Ellis – has developed a reputation for excellence throughout Canada and internationally. Celebrating 25 years, the quartet’s originality, contagious enthusiasm, unique sonority, and remarkable cohesion have all contributed to its long term success.
The Lafayette String Quartet – violinists Ann Elliott-Goldschmidt and Sharon Stanis, violist Joanna Hood and cellist Pamela Highbaugh Aloni. Since 1986, the Lafayette String Quartet has divided their time between entertaining audiences all over North America and Europe and teaching some of Canada’s finest young string players. Their residency at the University of Victoria is rich in local performances and community involvement. Their concerts in Canada and abroad are hailed as “Passionate, riveting, and with flawless ensemble.”
