These innovators of the classical music world come together in an electrifying performance of Tchaikovsky’s Souvenir de Florence—a rare example of a string sextet—plus works by Dvořák, Telemann, Bartók, and the Pulitzer Prize-winning composer Caroline Shaw. Evoking sounds of travel—from the European countryside to 19 cities, and the literary world—this program is one to remember. Embodying the Banff Centre’s reputation for producing visionary, masterful artists, these prize winners of the Banff International String Quartet Competition show us what classical music can be in the twenty-first century.
Join us after the show for drinks with the artists!
