CMC Presents: New Orford Quartet
In partnership with the New Orford Quartet residency at University of Toronto's Faculty of Music Composition Department

The “electrifying” (Toronto Star) New Orford Quartet brings innovative insights to R. Murray Schafer’s fiery First String Quartet and Beethoven’s first quartet, Opus 18. No 1. This exciting exploration of “firsts” will feature world premiere performances of two hand-chosen, first string quartets by emerging composers at the University of Toronto's Faculty of Music Composition Department.

“The finest new string quartet in recent memory.”
