Cecilia String Quartet – Celebrated Canadian Ensemble

September 25, 2016 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm

With a successful European tour followed by a 2016 Juno nomination for its highly acclaimed Mendelssohn recordings, Cecilia String Quartet continues to win deserving praise. The Toronto-based, internationally acclaimed quartet formed in 2004, and is currently ensemble-in-residence at the U of T Faculty of Music.

The quartet has been hailed for “powerful” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “dauntingly perfect” (Berliner Zeitung) performances. Multiple prize-winners including Osaka (2008), Bordeaux and Banff (2010), past engagements have included performances at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Berlin Konzerthaus, London Wigmore Hall, and venues in Italy, Switzerland, Belgium, and Norway.

The ensemble will open our season with a Haydn Russian quartet, Op. 33, No. 1 in B minor plus the sublime Quartet in D Major, Op. 44, No. 1 by Mendelssohn, and more.

“The Cecilia capture the innocent quality…subtly reacting as Mendelssohn’s harmonic language darkens…they combine energy with finely pointed details. A terrific achievement.” Gramophone

“We heard an almost unimaginable level of articulation, communication, timbres, clarity of structure and, again and again, a deep musical rhetoric second to none.” Bremen Kreiszeitung
