The fourth quartet presented in Victoria as part of a series of works composed by female composers commissioned by the Lafayette String Quartet. Vivian will be giving a pre-concert talk at 7:45 PM. Shostakovich Quartet No. 4 and Beethoven's Op. 59, No 3 are also featured.
Thrilled to be returning to this marvelous series, the LSQ will be giving Canada's "mainland" premiere of Vivian Fung's quartet "Spiraling" commissioned by the LSQ. Shostakovich Quartet No. 4 and Beethoven's Quartet Op. 59, No 3 are also on the program.
Nicola Lefanu is the only non-Canadian composer in this series of five commissions. This is the final newly commissioned quartet of the season and the LSQ is thrilled to be pairing it with another remarkable quartet composed by Lefanu's mother, the late Dame Elizabeth Violet Maconchy, considered one of Britain's finest composers.
