Classical guitar virtuoso Alexander Dunn and guests present a unique concert of string music. UVic’s graduate string quartet, Cuarteto Chroma, Victoria Conservatory of Music faculty violinists, Simon MacDonald and David Visentin, plus Lafayette String Quartet violinist Ann Elliott-Goldschmid and cellist Pamela Highbaugh Aloni will all share the stage for this Faculty Concert Series event.
Familiar masterworks will be paired with some unknown gems on a program which includes Cuarteto de Cuerdas by Victoria guitarist and composer, Liova Bueno (MMus ’12) as well as Quintetto for Guitar & Strings by Leo Brouwer, Cuba’s musical treasure. You’ll also hear Felix Mendelssohn’s magnificent Octet Op. 20, a stunning achievement for the composer who was only 16 years old at the time it was written. Rounding out the concert is the Canadian premiere of Ferdinand Rebay’s Kleine Fantaise for guitar and string quartet, an expressive exploration of Brahms’ song ‘O wüsst ich doch den weg zurück…’
Dunn has performed to enthusiastic acclaim in Canada and around the globe. In solo, concerto, and chamber music he is consistently praised for his musicality, technique and rich sound.
