Friends of Chamber Music

CHAMBER MUSIC’S LONGSTANDING COMPANIONS

Friends of Chamber Music are celebrating an amazing anniversary: 70 years of bringing music to Vancouver! The Friends consistently present the finest small group ensembles, fostering a meaningful connection and exchange between musicians and audience alike. They can’t wait to share their selections for this special season.

One major highlight is the acclaimed Szymanowski Quartet from Poland teaming up with Emmy-winning violist Richard Yongjae O’Neill to perform all six of Mozart’s fabulous and rarely heard string quintets. More headliners include the multiple Grammy-winning Emerson String Quartet, the celebrated Takács Quartet, the dynamic Vienna Piano Trio, the critically acclaimed Pavel Haas Quartet, and two exciting and varied groups from NYC. In addition, the venerable Russian Borodin Quartet will play Shostakovich quartets and the Quartetto di Cremona will present an all-Italian program.

In 2018, the Friends will co-present two “authentic instruments” string quartet concerts with Early Music Vancouver, and the 64th annual Young Musicians Chamber Music Competition.

Chamber musicians blend their individual talents and hone a unique ensemble sound through years of practice, allowing this extraordinarily personal music to be rediscovered again and again by ever more Friends.
