07 EMERGING ARTISTS ALUMNI CONCERT @ 8:00pm - 10:00pm

Featuring:
Jiten Beairsto, violin (BMus '14)
Sydney Tetarenko, clarinet (BMus '13)
Emily Burton, cello (BMus '11)
Natalie Lo, piano

Vancouver-based musicians Jiten Beairsto, Sydney Tetarenko, Emily Burton, and Natalie Lo present a program featuring two of the most significant chamber music works of the mid-20th century: Bartok's Contrasts and Messiaen's Quartet for the End of Time. Composed only three years apart for very similar instrumentation, these works are nevertheless radically different in style and subject matter. Bartok's music, gritty and earthbound, centres on folk music and dances, while Messiaen's Quartet looks towards eternity and the heavens.
