Event description
Music InsideOUT:Join the Emily Carr String Quartet and host Robert Holliston as they explore Dvořák’s String Quartet No.10 'Slavonic', Op.51

About this event

The Emily Carr String Quartet Society is proud to present Music InsideOUT: Dvořák. 

Explore Antonín Dvořák with a morning of music and insight into one of the first Czech composers to achieve worldwide recognition.

Tea, coffee, and sundries will be served followed by discussion, analysis, and a full performance of Dvořák’s String Quartet No.10 in E flat Major.

Our host, Robert Holliston, an accomplished accompanist and chamber player, has performed throughout Canada, the USA, England, New Zealand, and has been heard frequently on CBC-Radio. A popular public speaker, Robert has given pre-performance lectures for Pacific Opera Victoria since 1993 and is POV’s Principal Coach. Robert is currently Head of Keyboard at the Victoria Conservatory of Music, where he also teaches piano and music history, and acts as vocal coach. Robert was a founding director of the VCM Opera Studio.

The Emily Carr String Quartet has established itself as one of BC's finest music ensembles. Formed in 2006 by members of the Victoria Symphony and Aventa Ensemble in Victoria BC, the Emily Carr String Quartet has performed in Canada, the USA and Europe. They have collaborated with artists such as Jamie Parker, Arthur Rowe, the Alcan Quartet, the Tin Alley Quartet and the Lafayette String Quartet. The quartet has also done much to honour the local painter for whom it is named. They perform works that pay homage to her, such as Jean Coulthard’s Pines of Emily Carr, and have incorporated her writings into many concerts. The ECSQ is also devoted to contemporary music, and has commissioned works from Canadian composers, inspired by Carr’s work, Tobin Stokes, Jocelyn Morlock, Jared Miller and Jennifer Butler. The ECSQ has been featured on CBC radio's "North by Northwest" and their CD "Hidden Treasure" was nominated for the 2012 classical recording of the year at the Western Canadian Music Awards.
