Evolution: Quartet - Sonic Pillars and Contrasts
Sonic Pillars and Contrasts
From France’s Joseph Bologne, to Germany’s Helmut Lachenmann and then Hungary’s Bela Bartok, this program, performed by the renowned Eybler, Parker, and JACK Quartets presents three contrasting sonic environments that stand as prominent pillars in the vast and wonderful world of the string quartet.
These three esteemed quartets are faculty from the Evolution: Quartet program and we are honored to have them join us on stage in Banff!
