Cecilia String Quartet Celebrates Canadian Women Composers

Hailed for their “powerful” (Chicago Sun-Times) and “dauntingly perfect” (Berliner Zeitung) performances, Toronto’s own Cecilia String Quartet is now entering its second decade. The Quartet gives the first performance of all four works they commissioned to celebrate Canadian women in music: Nicole Lizée’s Isabella Blow at Somerset House,Emilie LeBel’s Taxonomy of Paper Wing, Katarina Curcin’s String Quartet No. 3, and Kati Agócs’s Tantric Variations.
