CD: Schafer • Quatuor No 8, Theseus, Beauty and the Beast

viewinitunes_enWith this new CD, the exciting Molinari Quartet is pursuing the recording of the complete works for string quartet by Canadian composer R. Murray Schafer. This new release features Schafer’s 8th Quartet (premiered in the spring of 2002), the chamber opera for mezzo and quartet Beauty and the Beast, and the quintet with harp Theseus. “[…] the Molinaris dared what even more internationally known ensembles don’t dare to do.” (Le Devoir)
