Guelph Musicfest welcomes back the internationally-renowned PENDERECKI STRING QUARTET. Celebrating their 33rd anniversary, the Penderecki String Quartet began their career as winners of the Penderecki Prize at the National Chamber Music Competition in Łódz, Poland in 1986. Now based in Waterloo, Ontario where they have been Quartet-in-Residence at Wilfrid Laurier University since 1991, The Penderecki String Quartet has become one of the most celebrated chamber ensembles of their generation. The four Penderecki musicians (now originating from Poland, Canada, and USA) bring their varied yet collective experience to create performances that demonstrate their “remarkable range of technical excellence and emotional sweep” (Toronto, Globe and Mail). The program includes quartets by Mozart, Erwin Schulhoff and the great BRAHMS PIANO QUINTET with guest pianist/artistic director KEN GEE. Presented in the beautiful Recital Hall of the Guelph Youth Music Centre. Limited seating available in advance, as well as ONLINE viewing. Visit guelphmusicfest.ca or phone 519-993-7591.
