Tokai celebrates Britten with Lesley Bouza

01. December 2013   2 pm,Britten

Heliconian Club, 35 Hazelton Ave, Toronto, ON M5R 1M6

 

Come and join us on a Sunday afternoon at the Heliconian club for a musical tapas dedicated to the 100th anniversary of  Britten’s birth. The main course is going to be Benjamin Britten’s Second String Quartet preceded by the music of  the composer that provided part of the inspiration for the piece: Henry Purcell. Britten dedicated this quartet to Purcell and it sums up some of Britten’s personal  experiences during the second World War. “…was the greatest advance that I have yet made” were Britten’s own words to describe his work at the time. The last movement of this piece is in a baroque ‘Chacony’ form and it ends up being the heart of this composition. We will start the concert with selections from Purcell’s Fantasias arranged for String Quartet, and then Soprano Lesley Bouza is going to join the quartet for a performance of Dido’s Lament from Purcell’s opera, Dido and Aeneas. This id perhaps one of the most well known compositions in a Chaconne form. The second half is going to consist of a performance of a newly commissioned piece by Tokai String Quartet inspired by the different national backgrounds of the members of our quartet, composed by the Serbian-Canadian composer Katarina Curcin. We will end the concert with Dvorak’s lighthearted ‘Slavonic’ E-flat Quartet.
