Friday, August 18
We kick off the festival with the Dior Quartet, one of Canada’s finest young string quartets and recent semi-finalists of the prestigious Banff International String Quartet Competition. They will present a rich, multi-faceted programme exploring the ethnic roots of each member of the ensemble: Israel, Korea/Canada/St. Lucia and the USA. To round off the evening, they will perform one of the most performed and recorded masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire, the Ravel String Quartet.
