We are so excited to be working with one of the world's finest violinists, Alexander Sitkovetsky!
A very warm welcome to one of the superstars of the violin world, UK-based virtuoso, Alexander Sitkovetsky, who joins Ensemble Q in a program of not only incredible music, but incredible contrasts. Golijov's extraordinary Quintet for Klezmer Clarinet and String Quartet has become a classic of the concert hall stage in its short 20-year life, and to follow, the most extraordinary expression of the soul in Schubert's String Quintet.
Featuring Paul Dean on Klezmer clarinet and bass clarinet, Dreams and Prayers by Golijov will transport you to far away places in an extraordinary journey into a magical soundworld full of mystique and passion with intense beauty, angst and rhythmic drive. Be prepared to have your breath taken away by this incredible work, then sip a glass of fine wine in the foyer before the exquisite Schubert String Quintet, with guest cellist Patrick Murphy.
Please join the musicians for drinks after the concert in the Conservatorium foyer.
