This concert by Quatuor Bozzini forms part of the Berwick Music Series, which combines live concerts by nationally and internationally known performers, educational events for those who would like to know more about classical music, and an opportunity for local musicians to perform alongside world-famous professionals.
Running from August until November, the 2019 series will focus on the string quartet, and comprise three concerts, three talks about each of the concerts and will culminate in a workshop and a large-ensemble performance. Each event can be booked separately or you can buy a series pass here. You will find more details of the performers and the programme at www.berwickmusic.org.
The most perfect expression of human behaviour is a string quartet. Jeffrey Tate
Formed in Montréal, Canada in 1999, Quatuor Bozzini is a world-class en-semble with an original voice in contemporary and classical music. Alex Ross, in the New Yorker, has acclaimed the Quartet for their “extraordinary playing”. The quartet presents an annual concert series in Montréal and also tours extensively in Canada, the US, South America and Europe. They have issued albums published by Edition Wandelweiser, Another Timbre, Wergo-Deutscher Musikrat, Centrediscs and ATMA Classique.
A Quatuor Bozzini concert is an intensely shared experience, with meticulous and sensuous attention to detail. They will perform music by Weeks, Worboys and Shostakovich.
