Verona Quartet
with JIJI, guitar

Sunday, April 26, 2020 at 4pm


CANCELLED DUE TO CORONAVIRUS

Hailed by The New York Times as an “outstanding ensemble,” they are one of the most decorated string quartets of its generation. The Verona Quartet has quickly earned a reputation for their “interpretive strength…robust characterization [and] commanding resonance” (Calgary Herald).

Applauded by the Calgary Herald as “… talented, sensitive…brilliant,” JIJI s an adventurous artist on both acoustic and electric guitar, playing a wide range of music from traditional and contemporary classical to free improvisation.

JIJI will join the Verona Quartet in a performance, for the first time in our series, of the Costenuovo-Tedesco Guitar Quintet as well as a Beethoven string quartet and works for solo guitar.
