Event type: All Ages
The Lafayette Quartet ranks, along with our own Penderecki Quartet, at the very top rung of Canadian Chamber Ensembles. They have performed the world over, and have been In Residence at the University of Victoria since 1991. Yariv Aloni was the violist of the Penderecki Quartet in its first years in Waterloo. He then fell in love with cellist Pam of the LSQ, and they chose to live in Victoria, where he has conducted a string orchestra and soloed widely.
MOZART'S STRING QUINTETS - Second OF TWO CONCERTS
The six Viola Quintets are rated by many critics as the very finest of his great output of chamber music. In this second concert, we have: K. 406 in c; K. 614 in Eb; and K. 516 in g.
The most popular of the quintets is probably K. 516, while the most advanced, complex, and even radical is K. 614 K. 406 is the string transcription of his fabulous wind octet in d minor, K. 388
