About the Performance
Rolston String Quartet, named CBC Radio’s “30 Hot Canadian Classical Musicians Under 30” in 2016, will sizzle onstage as they perform works that reflect the trials and tribulations of human existence. Don’t miss your chance to hear Mozart challenging music norms, Györgi Ligeti (composer of the film music for 2001: a Space Odyssey) responding to his native Hungary’s totalitarian regime, and Steve Reich’s moving reflection on train travel before, during, and after World War II.
