QFW ’23 presents: the PENDERECKI String Quartet

July 1 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

| $22.63

Join us for a fabulous afternoon on Canada Day!

Celebrating their 36th  anniversary, the Penderecki String Quartet began their career as winners of the Penderecki Prize at the National Chamber Music Competition in Łódz, Poland in 1986.   Now based in Waterloo, Ontario where they have been Quartet-in-Residence at Wilfrid Laurier University since 1991, The Penderecki String Quartet has become one of the most celebrated chamber ensembles of their generation.  The four Penderecki musicians (now originating from Poland, Canada, and USA) bring their varied yet collective experience to create performances that demonstrate their “remarkable range of technical excellence and emotional sweep” (Toronto, Globe and Mail).

They are presenting a beautiful program:

Mozart’s K.387 G Major (the first of the magnificent quartets dedicated to Haydn); Erwin Schulhoff’s Five Pieces for String Quartet (1924) and Johannes Brahms’ stormy String Quartet in C minor, Op.51, No.1

Please consider purchasing a Festival Pass.
