Description:

Part of the 2023 Winter Chamber Music Festival

Andrew Wan and Jonathan Crow, violin; Sharon Wei, viola; Brian Manker, cello

“These four string virtuosos animate every note with uncommon power and passion as well as elegance. Listen and weep,” raves the Toronto Star. The quartet’s numerous honors include two Opus Awards for Concert of the Year and a 2017 Juno Award for Best Classical Album. Dedicated to promoting Canadian works, the quartet has performed major 20th-century works by Glenn Gould, Sir Ernest MacMillan, Jacques Hétu, R. Murray Schafer, and Claude Vivier, and commissioned works by such emerging composers as François Dompierre, Gary Kulesha, Airat Ichmouratov, and Tim Brady. Recent chamber music collaborations have included pianists Marc-André Hamelin and Menahem Pressler. The quartet serves as Artist in Residence at the University Club of Toronto.
