The ECSQ season continues with a concert of joy and sorrow: themes that are continuously grappled by composers over the years.  New works offer new insight while old classics still continue to ring true. Haydn’s “Sunrise” Quartet opens with the sublime rising warmth of a new day. Mozetich’s Lament in the Trampled Garden is a neo-romantic Canadian gem that is mournful, but sways with the joy of blooming flowers.  Our last piece of the concert is Borodin’s famous String Quartet No. 2, full of beauty and nostalgia.  The piece is rumoured to have been a 20th anniversary gift to his wife, and is meant to portray the story of the time they first met.
