Concert: two musical works for string quartets


During an exceptional evening, the McCord Museum hosts eight promising talents from the Schulich School of Music of McGill University. The evening program features two works for string quartets: the first is written by Joseph Haydn and performed by Elsa Quartet, the second is written by Claude Debussy and performed by the Quartet Mason. An auditory delight!
