Saguenay Quartet and Lafayette String Quartet

On September 18, 2019, in ArtSpring Presents, by Jessica Beck

The ArtSpring Presents season opens its 20th season on October 18th with an octet of perfect harmony: Saguenay Quartet (QC) — violinists Marie Bégin and Nathalie Camus, violist Luc Beauchemin, and cellist David Ellis — have developed a prestigious reputation for excellence and The Lafayette String Quartet (BC) — violinists Ann Elliott-Goldschmid and Sharon Stanis, violist Joanna Hood, and cellist Pamela Highbaugh Aloni — are hailed as passionate and riveting, a flawless ensemble.

Mendelssohn’s Octet in E-flat major Op. 20; Niels Gade’s Octet Op. 17; a newly commissioned piece from the Canadian composer Airat Ichmouratov.

Thank you to Joan Farlinger for sponsoring this performance.
