Villa-Lobos Quartet in Montréal

James Darling, cellist from Le Quatuor Saint-Germain, sends information about an upcoming concert series on the Île de Montréal which features the great First Villa-Lobos String Quartet. Coincidentally, I've just flown back from Montréal to Red Deer. Would that I could have stuck around in one of my favourite cities until October!

The program of the concerts:

Adagio et Rondo, K 617........W.A. Mozart
Winds of Thera.........Andrew MacDonald
Quatuor no. 1 en do majeur......Heitor Villa-Lobos
Five Tango Sensations........Astor Piazzolla
Le Quatuor Saint-Germain avec Joseph Petric, accordéon de concert

- October 9, 2009 20h Maison de la culture Villeray Saint-Michel (Montréal)
- October 11, 2009 20h Chapelle historique du Bon Pasteur (Montréal)
- October 14, 2009 20h Maison de la culture Notre-Dame-de-Grâce (Montréal)

String Quartet #01 is becoming very popular; it couldn't happen to a better piece!
