Lafayette Quartet Performs at Bartok Symposium


"Bartk's String Quartets: Tradition and Legacy"
University of Victoria
September 19 & 20, 2008

Attention string quartet enthusiasts: In these two upcoming concerts, the Lafayette String Quartet is performing two distinctly different programs showing how the music of Bartk was so strongly influenced by the music of Beethoven and how, in turn, Bartk's music influenced the next generation of the great Hungarian composers Gyrgy Kurtg and Zoltn Jeney. This will be one of the rare opportunities to hear the diversity of these giants back to back.

These concerts are taking place in conjunction with the international symposium "Bartk's String Quartets: Tradition and Legacy." All symposium events are free and open to the public.

The Lafayette String Quartet has performed the Beethoven Cycle to critical acclaim across Canada. Their "thought-provoking interpretations" and "technically perfect ensemble" are not to be missed. "SplendidĶ powerful and riveting in every way." (New York Times)
