Praised for their “emotional investment” and “decisive” interpretations (Toronto Star) along with their “intense” and “hot-blooded” performances (Globe and Mail), Debut Atlantic is pleased to welcome back one of Canada’s leading string ensembles, the Tokai String Quartet.
Presenting a program of works by Beethoven, Wolf and Ravel, Tokai will also perform a new piece by Canadian composer Katarina Curcin, “The World on A String”, which was written for the Quartet and is being premiered on this Debut Atlantic tour.
Prize winners at the Banff International String Quartet in 2007, Tokai first toured with Debut Atlantic that same year. This inspiring group has also received the Felix Galimir Award as well as the Sir Ernest MacMillan Memorial Foundation Award.
The Tokai String Quartet has been ensemble-in-residence for a number of institutions including Queen’s University, the Southern Ontario Chamber Music Institute, and Music at Port Milford. They continue to be one of Canada’s most vibrant string quartets.
On their Debut Atlantic Encore tour, the Tokai String Quartet will perform six concerts and seven educational activities ranging from university master classes to elementary school concerts, as part of the Debut Goes to School! program. Their Mount Allison concert at Brunton Auditorium in Sackville NB on March 9th will be recorded by Radio-Canada, Espace Musique.
