Hailed for their “powerful” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “dauntingly perfect” (Berliner Zeitung) performances, Toronto’s own Cecilia String Quartet is now entering its second decade. The Quartet gives the first performance of all four works they commissioned to celebrate Canadian women in music: Nicole Lizée’s Isabella Blow at Somerset House, Emilie LeBel’s Taxonomy of Paper Wing, Katarina Curcin’s String Quartet No. 3, and Kati Agócs’s Tantric Variations.

Stay for a fascinating and fun post-concert chat with the artists.

Program:
Katarina Ćurčin: String Quartet No. 3 (Toronto premiere)
Kati Agócs: Tantric Variations (Toronto premiere)
Emilie LeBel: Taxonomy of Paper Wing (Toronto premiere)
Nicole Lizée: Isabella Blow at Somerset House
