Salon Tokyo


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. The japanese performers Yuki Isami (flute) and Kimihiro Yasaka (piano), who live in Montréal, will join the Salon Tokyo — II concert as participants of the Performer’s Kitchen, Quatuor Bozzini’s residence program dedicated to performers.
