Event description
The final concert in the ECSQ's Fall Season: Portraits, featuring music by Dvorak and Beethoven (who this year marks his 250th birthday).

About this Event

The first of Ludwig van Beethoven’s middle quartets is the String Quartet no. 7 in F major. This giant celebrates his 250th birthday in December this year. With this set, he pushed the genre’s norms of scale and emotion even further. We’ll also hear selections from Antonin Dvorak’s Cypresses. This collection of string quartet versions of his love songs began their pre-musical lives in poet Gustav Pfleger-Moravsky's anthology bearing the same name.

Christ Church Cathedral and the Emily Carr String Quartet are pleased to announce Portraits, a lineup of in-person concerts this fall at the cathedral. The Emily Carr String Quartet, now in its 15th Season, will present such musical masterpieces as Schubert's Death and the Maiden, Shostakovich 8th Quartet, Brahms Clarinet Quintet and contemporary work by Carolina Shaw.

Through social distancing, limited seating and repeat performances, Portraits will offer the community an opportunity to once again attend a concert in-person and to experience the power of live music.
