Verona Quartet with
JIJI, guitar

 

Sunday, September 11, 2022 at 4pm


          

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 is 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 of the Boccherini Quintet in D, Fandango
