During Salon Tokyo, Quatuor Bozzini will welcome performers Ko Ishikawa (shō) and Satoko Inoue (piano). Don’t miss this rare opportunity to attend a Montréal concert featuring contemporary music works written for both strings and shō, a traditional Asian wind instrument. A varied program of nine Canadian premieres of recent Japanese works, written for a variety of instrumental forces (quintets, quartets, duos and solos), in addition to mature pieces by major composer Jo Kondo (Japan). Pieces by John Cage (United-States) and a premiere of a work by Daryl Jamieson (Canada), whose musics were largely influenced by the Asian culture, will complete the program. An elegant and diaphanous musical blend, punctuated with ephemeral outbursts.
