Live stream from the Sala Rossa.
Montreal string quartet Quatuor Bozzini brings you birdsongs, zoo animals, and Commedia dell’arte, with a selection of contemporary works by three Canadian composers. Discover the music of Cassandra Miller (QC-UK), Michael Oesterle (QC), and Ana Sokolović (QC) alongside these avant-garde musicians.
Since 1999, Quatuor Bozzini has been an original voice in new, experimental and classical music. Their skew is radically contemporary, propelling the hyper-creative Montréal scene, and beyond. Not content to parlay received wisdom, the quartet cultivates an ethos of risk-taking, and boldly venture off the beaten track. Quatuor Bozzini stands out with their “extraordinary playing” (Alex Ross, The New Yorker). With rigorous qualitative criteria, they have nurtured a vastly diverse repertoire, unbiased by the currents of fashion. This has led to over four hundred commissioned pieces, as well as close to five hundred premiered works. A Quatuor Bozzini concert is an intensely shared experience, with meticulous and sensuous attention to detail.+ info
